FLAHERTY NYC PRESENTS:
Francisco Serrano's SEVA LIVES

Considered one of the best Puerto Rican films in recent years, SEVA LIVES offers a post-modern look at the history and impact of the U.S. invasion and occupation of the island.
When a fictional story reimagining the U.S. invasion was published in a widely-read newspaper in Puerto Rico, its readers believed it as fact. But like the infamous chaos-inducing Orson Welles radio dramatization of the War of the Worlds, the story was utter fiction simply taken as reality. The story contained letters from a historian who unearthed evidence that the United States did not enter Puerto Rico peacefully in June, as history dictates. Instead, the Americans invaded through a town named "Seva," massacred its people, and covered it up by changing the town's name to "Ceiba," its current name.
This story, as the newspaper tried to make clear, is fiction. Yet readers around the island believed it and a scandal ensued.
SEVA LIVES redefines Puerto Rican history in this update of the classic Puerto Rican short story "Seva." It mixes fictional elements with actual archival footage and real interviews with historians to discuss the significance and impact of the short story today. But, most significantly, SEVA LIVES deconstructs the sociopolitical debate of the facts and myths surrounding the history of Puerto Rico and explores the issues that arise when fiction meddles with recollections of the past.
Organized by Cinema Tropical, this screening celebrates the 50th anniversary of the 7th Robert J. Flaherty Seminar, held in Barranquitas, Puerto Rico.
SEVA LIVES is the first film of director, producer and editor Francisco Serano, whose previous credits as a digital animator include Maldeamores, Party Time and Diez en la Música. Serrano spends most of his time in front of his computer, where he made most of SEVA LIVES. He was born and raised in San Suan, Puerto Rico, and currently lives in Washington, D.C.

I'm seeking an experienced videographer to be a second camera on a shoot taking place this Saturday, June 25th, from about 1 to 3:30. It centers on a September 11-related memorial event occurring in a garden in Inwood at the northern tip of Manhattan. I can't pay much but I'm offering $50 and lots of gratitude. I'm shooting with a Panasonic DVX-100 so I'm seeking someone who owns the same kind of camera, and I'd prefer someone with experience with two-camera shoots. If interested please email me at neilorman[AT]earthlink[DOT]net.
