Synopsis

La Ruta is an immersive, experimental work that documents the now abandoned recreational infrastructure,  uncontrolled natural landscapes and off-road sites of Puerto Rico’s Panoramic Route. Built in 1974 as the government’s alternative to bring tourism and progress to the central-mountain range of the island, the route is known for its poor road infrastructure and disconnection from the more densely populated metropolitan areas. This has resulted in a loss of the historical sites on the route.

La Ruta screens as part of Caribbean Shorts on Saturday, September 29 at 3:00pm.
