Dreams Ensnared: The Dominican Migration to New York/Sueños Atrapados: La Migración Dominicana a Nueva York

Dreams Ensnared: The Dominican Migration to New York/Sueños Atrapados: La Migración Dominicana a Nueva York. Sonia Fritz. Puerto Rico, 1994. English and Spanish versions. Color; 21 minutes each. VHS.

This documentary film focuses on the experience of the Dominican women who are forced to migrate to Puerto Rico and then to New York due to the precarious socioeconomic conditions in the Dominican Republic. It also examines the different means whereby Dominicans abandon the native country, including illegal passage on the dangerous yolas (small boats) trip.
