Pregones Theater PRTT: Bronx Film Wednesday (9/2/20) Pregones/PRTT's Bronx Film Wednesdays goes digital with monthly screenings online and on BronxNet cable channels. Kicking off the new format is a gem documentary from Puerto Rico: WONDER WOMAN ON WHEELS (La Mujer Maravilla Sobre Ruedas) is an uplifting documentary about a woman who will not let cerebral palsy stop her from breaking the world's record for largest group hug! Featuring Ileana Torres Báez, a writer and poet from Puerto Rico. Her vision and mission are to inspire change in a society that discriminates and looks with pity at people with disabilities. Directed by Omar Camilo, the doc is paired with award-winning shorts from Tenerife, United Kingdom, and Hawai'i. This month’s theme is “Overcoming Disabilities.” Program hosted by Sonyi Lopez and featuring an interview with the filmmaker!
