Screening MOMA Film, Doc Fortnight. 
Throughout the Caribbean region, the sea is visible when you climb toward the sky, up in the mountains. All the works in this screening, guest curated by the Puerto Rico–based artist cooperative Sociedad del Tiempo Libre, have a link to the expansive and expanded,multifacetd Caribbean and move through iconic scenes—carnival, bucolic tropical landscape, exuberant musical city—in which an event or a specific history unfolds through gesture and voice. The program, featuring short films by Juan Carlos Alom, Miryam Charles, Joiri Minaya, Ricardo Ariel Toribio, Luis Arnías, Laura Sofía Pérez, and Minia Biabiany, will be presented by STL’s Beatriz Santiago Muñoz and Pablo Guardiola, with select filmmakers present.
