“TAINO DAKA (I AM)” documentary explores Taino history, culture and the indigenous identity throughout the Caribbean and the Diaspora, who are considered to be extinct for over 500 years since their encounter with Christopher Columbus on his first voyage to the New World. Today, Tainos are on a quest to claim back their identity and rewrite their history. Featuring Roberto Múkaro Borrero (as self); 3N Productions; Directed by Alex Zacarias.


Filmmaker Paul Puglisi traveled across the US to make sense of the controversy surrounding of one of America's most enduring symbols - Christopher Columbus. Conversations with cultural leaders, historians, activists, authors and educators bring to life the perspectives that molded a 15th century sailor into a genocidal conqueror, a messenger of Christ, a cultural icon and a patriotic hero in a land he never knew existed. Directed by Paul Puglisi; Appearance by Roberto Múkaro Borrero (as self).
