End the Debt! Decolonize! Liberate Puerto Rico! Scroll

The scroll is an artistic response to Hurricane María which tells a story of struggle and resistance to U.S. colonialism in Puerto Rico and its diaspora. This pre-cinematic technology employs continuous moving images and is performed with an original song by Papel Machete. The hand-illustrated scroll is over 170 feet long and was developed over fifteen months. The piece was created by artists from AgitArte and Papel Machete, in collaboration with Estefanía Rivera, Crystal Clarity, Rachel Schragis, and Emily Simons.  This sample demonstrates our ability to complete a large-scale project produced in three phases, from research to illustration, with multiple collaborators.
