*ANNOUNCING NEW LATINO/WOMEN'S STUDIES RELEASE FROM THE CINEMA GUILD*

ROAD OF NO RETURN: THE BANISHMENT OF MARIA DE LAS MERCEDES
BARBUDO
This short drama portrays the efforts of a young woman
photographer to uncover the fragmentary and little-known history
of an early nineteenth-century Puerto Rican feminist and
political activist who was deported for her nationalist beliefs
by the Spanish colonial government of the era. As the historical
drama unfolds--and is revealed to involve repression on the
grounds of both gender and political beliefs--it is juxtaposed to
events in more recent Puerto Rican history.
