"A daylong screening of films produced by the Puerto Rican Division of Community Education (Division de Educacion a la Comunidad, or DIVEDCO). Officially founded in 1949, it brought together a stunning group of visual artists, writers, and composers, producing films about health issues, hygiene, grassroots action, literacy campaigns, education and democracy. The films featured nonprofessional actors from rural areas. They constitute a vital archive of the dramatic social change experienced in the island in the 50s and its quickly fading, rural way of life." – KJCC
It's a movie marathon at NYU's KJC Center, featuring films produced by DIVEDCO: Una gota de agua (1949); (1952); Los peloteros (1951); Una Voz en la montaña (1952); El Puente (1953); Modesta (1956); Juan sin seso (1960).
