60 Miles East (film) NYC
Hey!! it's finally arrived!!!! It's going to be playing at the NYC Latino Film Festival. July 24, 2008. It's going to be shown at a theater, not sure which one, located at 110 W 57th St -----the cross is 6-7 Ave....At 7 PM.
I saw it, I was very excited when it arrived.
I thought that it was ok... A little disappointed though
whats it about ? i cant find it on my movie database thing
Google NYC Latino Film Festival 2008..... or put in 60 miles east in this sight and there is a short about it.
I found the synopsis -
The Dominican Republic is a small island in the Caribbean with a population of just over nine million, a stable economy and a democratic system of government. Known for its beaches, music and famous baseball players, the island looks like paradise. But, a closer look reveals the wealth of this paradise touches only a few, leaving most in search of alternative, often drastic solutions.
Those wanting to leave the island often attempt to go to the U.S. and emigrate with residency or tourist visas. Those who donít have the opportunity to travel with a visa try by any means to reach the closest U.S. port: the island of Puerto Rico, just 60 miles east of the Dominican Republic.
Crammed into fragile, wooden boats ("yola"), Dominicans risk their lives in search of better ones. In the past twenty years, more then 500,000 people have put their lives in jeopardy crossing the shark-infested waters of the Mona Passage, leading to Puerto Rico. Approximately 200,000 Dominicans have arrived safely on the opposite shore. Others have been caught and brought back, soon to try the voyage again. But the rest are simply said to be...disappeared.
Try 60mileseast.com. There used to be a trailer. Or go to the search site at the top of this page and put in lendeborg. There is a lot written about it.
Can you tell us why without giving too much of the movie away?

I thoroughly enjoyed the interviews they had of them before the trip.
