There is a growing interest in making War Against All Puerto Ricans into a movie.
This might be the right time…so that the world can see the history of Puerto Rico, and see how the US has treated it, for the past 117 years.
The true information about Puerto Rico never gets reported…so perhaps the way to fight the dictatorship of a “Financial Control Board,” is with a movie that shows the real history of our island.
The filming of the movie would help our young people to re-discover their own history.
They would be excited that Benicio Del Toro, Jimmy Smits, Rosario Dawson, Rosie Perez, Zoe Saldana, Hector Elizondo, Braulio Castillo Jr., Ruben Blades, Joaquin Phoenix, Marc Anthony, Ricky Martin, Bruno Mars, Esai Morales, Andy Garcia and other great talents, might be portraying the heroes and villains of Puerto Rico.
The movie could premiere at the Cannes and Toronto film festivals: to let the whole world understand, the struggles and sacrifice of our people.
Pedro Albizu Campos is a major historical figure: in the same realm as Simón Bolívar, José Martí, and Nelson Mandela. It is time that his story is finally told.
The movie will focus on the life of Don Pedro, and his struggle to liberate Puerto Rico.
The people of the United States – and the whole world – need to understand Pedro Albizu Campos: what he lived, sacrificed, and died for.
