“Pa’lante” tells the story of an estranged family trying to reconnect in the aftermath of Hurricane Maria. With a powerful song by Alynda Mariposa Segarra, the film explores the nature of family and resilience in a community whose history has been marginalized by the media.
Starring Mela Murder (The Florida Project) as Milagros and Kareem Savinon as Manuel, “Pa’lante” is a moving film with Nuyorican and Puerto Rican identities at its core.
