This visually striking, kaleidoscopic portrait of Puerto Rico in the aftermath of Hurricane Maria criss-crosses the island to document the resilience of a community banding together to rebuild.

While the devastation of María attracted a great deal of media coverage, the world has paid far less attention to the 72-billion-dollar debt crisis crippling Puerto Rico well before the winds and waters hit. A compassionate and stirring cinematic essay, Landfall examines the dual environmental and economic crises of not only a natural disaster, but the disaster of American colonialism and its economic legacies.

'Landfall (is) an incisive documentary…' - Phil Guie, Film-Forward

'Landfall is perhaps one of the most important documentaries that would have had its debut at the cancelled 2020 Tribeca Film Festival. Offering a compelling look at the lingering aftermath of Hurricane Maria on the commonwealth of Puerto Rico, this documentary may not be easy to watch, but it is essential viewing nevertheless.' - Sean Boelman, disappointment media
