Postponed – Film Screening: The Last American Colony

May 05, 2020 7:00 PM — 8:00 PM

Overview

This event was temporarily postponed. We will be sure to post the new date and time when it is confirmed.

The Last American Colony is a compelling film telling the story of one man’s quest, Juan Segarra, a Harvard-educated activist who having become acquainted with the history of his island home of Puerto Rico and its relationship to the United States chose to embrace the independence movement and became a member of Los Macheteros, (“The Machete Wielders”) a group dedicated to achieving its goals through armed struggle.  Having spent more than 18 years in prison for his illegal actions, Segarra’s focus today is on different tactics renouncing an armed propaganda strategy while still working for independence; his new career is that of a translator working in the Puerto Rican criminal justice system.

 

The film will be followed by a conversation with Bestor Cram, one of the film’s co-directors, and Ramon Borges-Mendez, Puerto Rican native and Professor at Clark University.
