AmeRícan Poet: Tato Laviera (DVD)


Product Description

AmeRícan Poet: Tato Laviera  DVD

AmeRícan Poet: Tato Laviera explores the life and legacy of Jesus Abraham ‘Tato’ Laviera, one of the leading figures of the Nuyorican movement, who passed away in 2013. 

“AmeRícan” is one of Laviera’s best known poems, an affirmation of the Nuyorican experience grounded in the same tension that has persisted into the present: a country, the United States, at odds with the definition of who and what represents ‘America.’ An excerpt of the poem appears at the beginning of the film, as it does throughout, recited by either Laviera himself or by the numerous Nuyorican poets he has influenced.
