Sugar Pathways

Johanna Bermudez-Ruiz, 2009

Sugar Pathways tells the riveting story of the unwilling migration by Puerto Rican families from the small Caribbean island of Vieques to the U.S. Virgin Islands.  This powerful and vibrant film recounts their will to survive, integrate and contribute to the culture, economy and politics of the Islands through personal interviews, new and archival footage and historic documentation.  Sugar Pathways is narrated by actress Lauren Vélez of the Emmy Award-winning Showtime series Dexter.
