03 Mar Flor de la Mar by Jorge Armand

SCREENING: MAY 27, 2017 – Saturday



DIRECTOR: Jorge Thielen Armand

On a remote Venezuelan island lie the ruins of Nueva Cádiz, the first European city in the Americas. Abandoned by the Spanish in the 16th century, the island now has a population of 51—all descendants of the slaves who built the city. Recent attempts by the Venezuelan government to revitalize the historic island have been foiled by mismanagement and insufficient funding, and the local community of fishermen is left to protect the site and their way of life.


DURATION: 24 mins
