Directed by: Marisol Gómez Mouakad
Country of Origin: Puerto Rico
Synopsis: Angélica works in a clothes factory in New York, sewing her own designs in the little spare time free from the demands of boyfriend Jose. Then
her father Wilfredo has a heart attack and she flies home to Puerto
Rico. Wilfredo is black, but Angélica’s mother is white, and it’s only
upon her return that she fully understands the virulent racism (and
sexism) she’s battled all her life. She finally grasps the choice she
must make: conform to the wishes of those who should have her interests
at heart, or follow her own path, independent but completely alone.
