Soy Tierra Desgajandome / I Am Soil Breaking Off by Paloma Sierra

A videopoem exploring Puerto Ricans immigrants’ feelings of belonging and alienation by Pittsburgh-based poet and director Paloma Sierra, animated by L.A. artist Andrew Edwards (click though to view storyboards from the animation). Grants from the City of Asylum and Carnegie Mellon University helped underwrite the production, including music by Dusty Sanders and audio engineering by Sebastian Gutierrez. The English translation in titling is the work of Abigail Salmon.

This is our second post of a Paloma Sierra video. Marie Craven shared Every Word I Say to You back on August 2.
