Puerto Rico -- 20th century
Scope and Contents:
The dramatic image in the poster illustrates the dilemma of Ignacio, a sugarcane worker who has a child out of wedlock without his wife's knowledge. Catalina, Ignacio's wife, discovers his secret but takes in the child and raises her as their own. In the books, films and posters of DIVEDCO, emotions like love, fear, and jealousy were readily acknowledged as real forces that determine the relationships between individuals, their families, and communities. (From exhibition text by Marvette Perez.)
