THE HEARTFELT DOCUMENTARY ABOUT THE RESILIENCE, STRENGTH AND DETERMINATION OF PUERTO RICO’S YOUNG RESIDENTS LEADING RECOVERY EFFORTS POST-HURRICANE MARIA, PREMIERED ON OCTOBER 2, JUST DAYS AFTER THE FOUR-YEAR ANNIVERSARY OF THE DEVASTATING HURRICANE.

We Still Here introduces the incredible youth of Comerío, Puerto Rico navigating the aftermath of Hurricane Maria, a disaster that brought an unprecedented level of devastation to an island already in an economic and political crisis. In the lush mountains in the center of Puerto Rico, 24-year-old Mariangelie Ortiz leads a group of young residents who never thought they would become the leaders of their community, nonetheless find themselves traveling to Washington D.C. to protest in the halls of Congress. Follow them in this coming of age story to find their power and begin creating a sustainable future for themselves and their community.
