PARIS, FRANCE, July 31, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — The National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI), reported that on June 18, the Iranian regime appointed a notorious violator of human rights as its next president. Ebrahim Raisi has played a key role in a historic massacre of political prisoners, serving on the “death commission” tasked with implementing then Supreme leader Rohullah Khomeini’s fatwa against the main opposition, the People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI/MEK).

The MEK was the prime target of the massacre between July and September of 1988, and it comprised the overwhelming majority of 30,000 political prisoners who were massacred during that period.

The death toll has naturally never been confirmed by Iranian authorities. Indeed, they have made every effort to cover up the details of the massacre in the ensuing three decades, by paving over and building upon the mass graves in which many victims are secretly interred. But contemporary evidence, including communications among the regime officials, make the MEK’s own estimates inherently plausible.

On July 31, 1988, with the massacre in full swing, Hossein Ali Montazeri, then the heir to the supreme leader, wrote to Khomeini in order to protest the indiscriminate nature of the killings, both on moral grounds and on the grounds that continuing along that path would inevitably foster greater resentment against the clerical regime both at home and abroad. In that letter, Montazeri appealed to the supreme leader to at least direct death commissions to “spare women with children.” He then suggested that in absence of such restraint, the effects of the ongoing proceedings could include “the execution of several thousand prisoners in a few days.”

This appears to be exactly what happened in the wake of Khomeini’s decision to ignore the first letter and then reply to a follow-up by writing only, “I am religiously responsible for the said verdict. You should not be concerned. May God obliterate every one of the MEK.” This remark was hardly more extreme than the language of the fatwa itself, which decreed that any political prisoners who “remain steadfast in their support for the MEK are waging war on God and are condemned to execution.”

The fatwa concluded by stating that it is “naïve to show mercy” to its targets and that the bodies tasked with carrying out the executions “must not hesitate, nor show any doubt or be concerned about details” of the decree’s implementation. This point was reiterated in Khomeini’s reply to an early request for clarification from Chief Justice Moussavi Ardebili.

Whereas the head of the judiciary questioned whether capital punishment should be meted out to persons who had already received lesser sentences and had committed no further crime, the supreme leader merely commanded Ardebili to “annihilate the enemies of Islam immediately,” then declared that in each individual case, the judiciary’s procedure should be whatever most “speeds up the implementation of the verdict.”

Khomeini’s letters to Ardebili and Montazeri directly contradict the descriptions of the proceedings that some Iranian officials have offered in recent years. In an interview with Fars News on August 4, 2016, for instance, a judiciary official named Ali Razini insisted that all of the executions were justified not just on the basis of the defendants’ membership in the MEK but also on the basis of unspecified crimes.

While Razini acknowledged that many prisoners were executed in the summer of 1988 after serving out lesser sentences, he proceeded to claim that all of them were guilty of “new crimes” either committed while in prison or committed earlier and discovered after the fact.

By all accounts, most regime authorities believed that any statement or the mere suggestion of continued support for the MEK was, in effect, a “new crime.” In one of his letters from the time of the massacre, Montazeri pointed out that some political prisoners had been asked to condemn the MEK and to affirm their willingness to fight in the war with Iraq, and had complied in both cases.

But some were then confronted with follow-up questions about whether they would be willing to walk through minefields on behalf of the supreme leader. Anything less than enthusiastic acceptance of that scenario was generally deemed to be evidence that the subject was still holding onto MEK political beliefs, and was grounds for execution.

In July 2017, Ali Fallahian, Iran’s Intelligence Minister in the period immediately following the massacre, gave an interview with state television in which he defended other, similarly arbitrary statements and behaviors that were deemed by the death commissions to be justification for capital punishment.

When challenged by the interviewer about whether anyone had been killed simply for being in possession of a MEK newspaper at the time of their arrest, Fallahian proudly answered in the affirmative. Such reading material, he explained, meant that the person in question was “part of that organization” and thus part of the population targeted by the fatwa.

The former Intelligence Minister went on to say that even buying bread to share with MEK activists could be grounds for execution. Such statements should leave no doubt about the fact that the 1988 massacre was specifically intended to wipe out the country’s leading Resistance group in its entirety. Then again, there should never have been any doubt on this point, since that intention was made clear by the fatwa itself, and especially by Khomeini’s follow-ups to it.

Even though the regime has attempted to cover-up the details of the massacre, officials have never been overly cautious about acknowledging its true intentions. Whatever caution they did hold seems to have evaporated since 2016, the year Montazeri’s son released an audio recording of the late ayatollah’s 1988 conversation with the members of the “death commission”, in which he condemned their participation in the “worst crime of the Islamic Republic.”

In August of that year, an official statement by the regime’s Assembly of Experts praised Khomeini’s fatwa for being “decisive and uncompromising” and for supposedly bringing the MEK “to the brink of complete annihilation.” Mostafa Pourmohammadi, then Iran’s Justice Minister and a former member of the death commissions himself, told state media that it was “God’s command” for the MEK to be executed and that those who carried out the mass killings were “proud” to do so.

The following month, the fatwa’s assertion that MEK members were “enemies of God” was reiterated by Ahmad Jannati, the head of the Guardian Council. Religious duty, he argued, “commands that we amputate their hands and legs, exile them, hang them.”

The Guardian Council would go on, in 2021, to exercise its vetting power in order to remove all viable candidates for the Iranian presidency other than Ebrahim Raisi, the man who had been appointed to lead the Judiciary in 2019 by Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei, as part of an ongoing series of rewards for those who helped to carry out the 1988 massacre.

Raisi’s ascension to the presidency reinforces the culture of impunity surrounding the 1988 massacre and other crimes against humanity, but it also threatens to bring even more attention to the massacre than Montazeri’s recording did in 2016. However, it is the moral and humanitarian responsibility of the international community to respond in a more assertive and coordinated fashion this time around, so as to bring accountability to Iran’s new president, Ebrahim Raisi, and those who have faced no consequences for this crime after more than 30 years.

Concedido por la Administración de Pequeñas Empresas (SBA, por sus siglas en inglés) a raíz del impacto del coronavirus, el SVOG brinda ayuda económica a los pequeños negocios del sector del entretenimiento en vivo que han resultado más perjudicados por la pandemia. Cubaocho, pilar del arte cubano del siglo XIX e inicios y mediados del siglo XX, fue uno de ellos.

Hasta la fecha, el programa ha otorgado $7,5 mil millones de dólares en subvenciones a más de 10,000 pequeñas empresas vinculadas con el mundo del espectáculo en directo. Según anunciara la SBA esta semana, más de dos tercios de los subsidios se han otorgado a negocios con menos de 10 empleados, cumpliendo así con el objetivo de darles prioridad a las firmas más pequeñas.

Texas Set To Arrest Migrants Who Cross The Border Illegally

Queens immigration attorney Scott Messinger

At Governor’s behest, state has begun arresting illegal immigrants on charges of trespassing or criminal mischief. by Nadia El-Yaouti

Immigrants facing criminal charges in state court are still guaranteed the right to due process and other constitutional rights of the criminally accused.”

— Scott Messinger, Queens, NY Immigration Attorney

QUEENS, NEW YORK, UNITED STATES, July 30, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Texas’ efforts on border security have ramped up as the state has begun arresting migrants for trespassing if they cross the border. This move is part of Gov. Abbott's latest border control efforts under what has been dubbed Operation Lone Star.

As part of the initiative, Abbott announced that the surge in migrant crossings was enough to set forth a disaster declaration. As part of this declaration, roughly 1,000 Texas Department of Public Safety Officers were sent to the border. They account for roughly a quarter of the state's police force. His declaration of disaster is an unusual one as such declarations are typically reserved for natural disasters including hurricanes and wildfires.

At a news conference held last month, Abbott explained of the border situation, “Our fellow Texans and our fellow Americans are being threatened every day.” He adds, “I’m talking to people in this region. Their lives and their properties and their families are being overrun.” Abbott’s calls to action echo Former President Trump’s stance at what he called a “border crisis.” Trump was also in attendance at the conference.

Following the surge of migrants at the border which has not let up as it normally would during the sweltering summer months, migrants have been facing criminal charges for illegally entering the country. This unconventional move to arrest migrants has drawn mixed reactions from both the community and county leaders.

Despite the governor calling the situation at the border cause for a disaster declaration, Democratic county judge of the Rio Grande Valley’s Hidalgo County, Richard Cortez, disagreed. Cortez explained, “We concluded we could not in good faith tell the people of our counties there is an emergency when there’s not an emergency.” Other officials in the Rio Grande Valley also pushed back and announced that they did not plan to participate in the disaster order.

Arrests of migrants began last week in Del Rio, a smaller-sized town that sits in the middle of the Texas – Mexico border. According to the Associated Press, sources have indicated that the empty Briscoe Unit, a state prison in Dilley, Texas, has been converted and will be used to house the migrants. The facility is reported to be able to house roughly 950 inmates.

According to Val Verde County Attorney David Martinez, migrants who are being arrested are single males. Martinez shared with reporters, “If John Doe is caught on my property and he has his wife and his children with him, chances are he’s not going to be arrested. That’s what’s been represented to me.”

The Val Verde County sheriff’s office shared that detainees will be taken to Briscoe where they will face trespassing and/or criminal mischief charges. Both charges bring with them anywhere between six months to up to a year in jail.

Immigration attorney Scott Messinger of Gladstein & Messinger P.C., explains that immigrants facing criminal charges in state court are still guaranteed the right to due process and other constitutional rights of the criminally accused, such as the right to counsel, the right to a speedy trial, etc. "Federal immigration proceedings," on the other hand, "are not criminal proceedings and do not guarantee the same rights," says Messinger. For instance, he points out that there is no right to counsel in immigration court. According to Messinger, immigrants detained by the state on trespassing charges arguably have more rights in state criminal proceedings than they would have if detained by federal immigration officials.

Last Monday, Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton shared with Fox News that Texas has been "forced into'' apprehending migrants who illegally enter the country. Paxton also criticized the Biden administration that the federal government had "no interest in doing the job."

Abbot emphasized his commitment to securing the border by sharing the following statement, "Texas supports legal immigration but will not be an accomplice to the open border policies that cause, rather than prevent, a humanitarian crisis in our state and endanger the lives of Texans."

Del Rio has seen the second-largest number of detainees at the border with over 150 apprehended this fiscal year alone. The Rio Grande Valley continues to be the state's largest apprehension zone of illegal migrants; however, they do not plan to join in on the arrest efforts.

Critics of Abbott’s move to arrest migrants have fired back calling the move a criminalization of immigration. If arrested migrants are convicted of the crime charged, they would have a trespassing or criminal mischief conviction on their record. Attorney Messinger explains that "if the conviction is for a crime that is considered a "crime involving moral turpitude" under the immigration law, it could make an immigrant inadmissible and prevent the issuance of a visa or require them to get a hardship waiver before a visa can be issued."

Once they are released from jail after having served their sentence, they are expected to be handed over to ICE, which would likely move to deport them. At that point, according to Messinger, immigrants who had fled their home country due to persecution or fear of persecution could claim fear of returning to their country of origin and seek asylum in the United States. After a year in asylum status, individuals can apply for a Green Card and permanent residence and eventually apply for U.S. citizenship. For some, at least, Texas' border crackdown might not be all that it is cracked up to be.

PARIS, FRANCE, July 30, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — On Thursday, July 29, 2021, on the thirty-third anniversary of the 1988 massacre of more than 30,000 political prisoners, more than 90% of whom were supporters and members of the People's Mojahedin Organization of Iran (AKA, Mujahedin-e Khalq, MEK, PMOI),

Resistance Units and supporters of the MEK reiterated the need for justice and prosecution of the perpetrators of this great crime, especially Ebrahim Raisi, known as the henchman of the massacre. He is scheduled to take office as the regime’s president next week.

Defiant youth and MEK supporters held pictures of the victims of the 1988 massacre, who were executed because they chose to remain steadfast in their commitment to Iran's freedom and refused to denounce the MEK.

By these acts, they called for justice to be imposed on those responsible for the massacre.

They also carried placards with slogans such as:

"The murderer [Ebrahim] Raisi must be prosecuted,”

“The criminal Raisi (should know), he will be held accountable,”

“we will neither forgive nor forget the 1988 massacre,”

“Death to Raisi, the henchman of 1988 massacre – hail to Rajavi.”

Resistance Units and Mujahedin-e Khalq supporters also hanged banners on overhead paths on major motorways in Tehran and other cities.

The banners quoted speeches by Mrs. Maryam Rajavi, the President-elect of the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI), on the 1988 massacre, and Ebrahim Raisi’s role in that crime against humanity.

The banners read:

"Maryam Rajavi: Raisi is guilty because even today he is still defending all his past crimes,"

"Maryam Rajavi: The 1988 massacre is one of the darkest moments in contemporary Iranian history,"

"Maryam Rajavi, today, the justice movement for the massacred victims is part of the movement of all Iranians to overthrow the regime,"

“Neither hiding the truth, nor destroying mass graves of the martyrs, or hiding their political tendencies (MEK), can stop the justice movement.”

Resistance Units and MEK supporters carried out these activities in harsh-security conditions and while the State Security Force and the Basiji militias were on high alert.

Local communities welcomed the activities with enthusiasm.

These activities took place in Greater Tehran, Isfahan, Ahvaz, Lahijan, Shahriar, Amol, Shiraz, Babolsar, Tabriz, Khorasan, Rasht, Kerman, Torbat-e Jam, Karaj, Khorramabad, Mashhad, Bandar Abbas, Yazd, Anzali, and Qazvin. Pictures of some of these activities could be seen below.

Further Allegations the EU's court in The Hague is Politically Motivated

EU's court in The Hague is accused of being politically motivated as defence counsel seeks recusal of President Ekaterina Trendafilova and Judge Charles Smith

The EU's Controversial Court in The Hague Attracts Further Criticism”

— Charles Simpson

LONDON, LONDON, UK, July 30, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — On 26 July 2021 defence counsel in the case of Nasim Haradinaj sought the recusal of the President and Vice President of the Kosovo Specialist Chambers.

The recusal of President Trendafilova from exercising any judicial, administrative or case-management decision-making function in the instant case, on the grounds that President Trendafilova’s statements at a confidential diplomatic briefing undermine her independent and impartial judicial decision-making and representation of the Kosovo Specialist Chambers and seriously harm the proper administration of justice before the Specialist Chambers or the proper internal functioning of the Specialist Chambers and that President Trendafilova’s conduct may have caused harm to the standing of the Specialist Chambers.

Defence counsel averred the Defendants’ rights and interests are substantially affected by the presence of the President at the Specialist Chambers, in her representative capacity as well as in her judicial capacity. There is a risk of that abuse of authority, misrepresentations of Defendants and promoting the cause of another party continuing, if she is not recused or disqualified from any judicial, administrative or case-management function in the instant case.

The recusal of Vice President Smith on the grounds of Vice President Smith’s prior conduct in a high judicial office in the European Union Rule of Law Mission in Kosovo (“EULEX”), including alleged demonstrated abuse of judicial authority and exercise of political pressure that undermines his judicial decision-making and risks seriously harming the proper administration of justice before the Specialist Chambers or the proper internal functioning of the Specialist Chambers and further that Vice President Smith’s conduct may have caused harm to the standing of the Specialist Chambers.

Defence counsel averred the Defendant’s rights and interests are substantially affected by the appointment of the Vice President as Presiding Judge on Trial Panel II. There is a risk of that abuse of authority by the Vice President continuing if he is not recused or disqualified from serving as Presiding Judge on Trial Panel II and from exercising any judicial, administration and case management function in the instant case. The Defence seeks the recusal or disqualification of the Vice President from all judicial, administration and case management function in the instant case on the basis that his prior conduct, as alleged, would cause any objective observer or bystander to apprehend, that there is an appearance of judicial bias or impropriety and a distinct lack of impartiality and independence, that cannot be restored.

The Kosovo Specialist Chambers has been mired in controversy since its creation. It is widely viewed in Kosovo as being an ethnic court.

OG OMyth Manifests Something Beautiful

Manifest Something Beautiful

Manifest Something Beautiful

Manifest Something Beautiful is an independent entertainment company. Their goal is to send meaningful messages that resonate with their fans.

If you aren't trying to manifest beauty then what are you doing bringing about destruction? Join us on our never-ending journey to Manifest Something Beautiful”

— OG OMyth

NEW YORK CITY, NEW YORK, UNITED STATES, July 30, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Coming from New York, more specifically the Bronx, OG Omyth grew up in the thick of the mix. Immersed in the culture of hip-hop from the place where it began. Starting off into graffiti, which led him to music, everything from the clothing to the lingo, he soaked up the game. The streets pulled him in, and his art was replaced with the all too familiar grind, which took him to spend a decade behind the concrete walls and cyclone fences that house so many stricken with poverty. Along the way, he met many men who shared the vision to build a better life and uplift the youth pulled into the streets. Manifest Something Beautiful was born. An independent entertainment company. Their goal is to send meaningful messages that resonate with their fans. Some of artists that make up Manifest Something Beautiful are: OG Omyth, Army Blaque, K Most, Skunk, Johnny Alkada, and Shawn Kain. That is why Designed Conviction worked with them to launch their first digital release “Certificate of Perseverance”. This project has great meaning and consists of seven songs, one of them being “Nobody Wins”.

Written and produced by OG Omyth and Army Blaque, Nobody Wins, is a heartfelt song that depicts a relationship of two lifelong neighborhood friends, OG Omyth and G-Mak, who became a rap duo. At some point life happened, and each had to maneuver life changes and familial responsibilities. G-Mak started a career in the workforce, while Omyth was put on pause with injury. Eventually OG Omyth began to create. Once he was ready to get things moving again, G-Mak was still otherwise occupied. OG Omyth began to question when their next project was coming, but he knew G-Mak was occupied mentally elsewhere. Fans assumed the duo were broken up, so Omyth made this song to relay that they were not in fact broken up but on a hiatus of sorts. The last project was titled Beats and Bars Premium Quality Volume 1, delivered on a mix-drive replacing yesteryears mixtape that fans favored, making them eager for more. Acclaimed as a classic by some, volume 2 was eagerly anticipated. OG Omyth could not provide this highly requested follow-up due to G-Mak’s current time and energy being occupied by his current career choice.

In the meantime, OG Omyth continued to work on several projects, always leaving room within the projects for G-Mak to add his gifts to the work. OG Omyth would do this by always prefacing his introduction with “one half of the legendary group OG Audio”, letting his partner and the world know he was awaiting his return and was ready for it. This one song of many from OG Omyth, earning a symbolic “Certificate of Perseverance,” would manifest itself as the title of this current EP.

About OG OMyth

OG OMyth is an emcee from the Bronx who started rapping in the early 90’s. His career path was abruptly halted by poor choices and street life. Said choices ultimately landed him a 9 ½-year bid in VA Correctional facilities.

Upon exiting the penal system in 2004 he reunited with a childhood friend, Skunk SK Oner, and began to work on music. SK was responsible for recording his first project ever; A mixtape which contained a series of rhymes written while in prison as part of a rap group called Prisoners of Conflict. He made a promise to fellow inmates that he would come home and name the project Wreck Yard Rhymes Vol. 1.

During this time, the commander in chief of the group, Lamar “Nature Boy DNL” Chapman committed suicide in 2005 which sparked the next project titled The Separation, which was a collection of dark songs that reflected his emotional state at that time, released in 2008. This release did not meet expectations presumably due its overly dark nature. At that time Omyth contemplated retirement over the next several years.

Then in 2012 he formed a group with G-Mak a.k.a Mak Laimbeer presently known as the legendary group OG Audio. Their first debut was a mix-drive titled Beats and Bars: Premium Quality Vol.1 in 2014. Its success was short lived due to the murder of Omyth’s first-born son in 2015 due to a domestic dispute involving his son’s mother and her new husband. Once again Omyth contemplated giving up, but instead used it as fuel and formed what the world knows today as MSB – Manifest Something Beautiful L.L.C.., alongside SK. Omyth then immortalized his son’s favorite self portrait as part of the company logo to intertwine his most beautiful manifestations.

MSB has now produced his latest project Certificate of Perseverance which is in stark contrast to the dark tones of his previous release. This project represents all that is possible when you stay the course, come to terms with your humanity embodying the phrase “each one, teach one” dropping gems to the youth and reminding us all that never is not an option for your dreams.

2021 Global Business & Interfaith Peace Award Finalists

CEO King Husein is one of the world's leading business champions of interfaith understanding and religious freedom.

Commitment to my faith has enabled me to establish core principles to guide my business from its inception. These core principles became the foundation upon which I built my company.”

— King Husein, Chairman and CEO of Span Construction & Engineering

WASHINGTON DC, TOKYO, July 30, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — King Husein, Chairman and CEO of Span Construction & Engineering, has played a critical role addressing the rising global tide of restrictions on religious freedom. Span Construction, the largest steel construction company in the world and exclusive builder of Costco stores worldwide.

King’s efforts range from helping found the South Asian Consortium for Religion and Law Studies, to helping kick off the first-ever Business Roundtable to advance International Religious Freedom during the 2019 UN General Assembly in New York City. In diverse venues such as the Horasis Global Conference in Portugal and the IRF Summit in Washington DC, King shares how religious ethics benefit business.

His advocacy also looks toward the next generation by his helping launch an initiative at BYU Hawaii to equip students from across Asia to know how to advance religious freedom when they return home.

"It is a true honor for us to recognize one of the world's leading business champions of interfaith understanding and religious freedom," said Dr. Brian Grim, President of the  Religious Freedom & Business Foundation, "and we wholeheartedly congratulate King as a finalist for the 2021 Global Business & Interfaith Peace Awards."

A concrete sign of King's commitment is that his company's "About" page prominently features his official pledge to protect the freedom of all who work in the company to practice their faith and beliefs.

Reflecting on the values that guide his business in a to-be published manuscript on faith@work, King Husein shares:

"I love President Abraham Lincoln’s statement: “Commitment is what transforms a promise into reality.”

"This summarizes how I strive always to keep my commitments in all aspects of my life. True success comes with preparation, opportunities, hard work, and relying on the Lord. Without a doubt, I know I can accomplish more with the help of God than I can on my own."

"Commitment to my faith has enabled me to establish core principles to guide my business from its inception. These core principles became the foundation upon which I built my company. They are ingrained in the culture of my company. Culture defines my company, and my religion defines me. Not only does my religion defines me, it also sustains me in my business, as I know it does for so many of my employees. Providing a workplace where we can bring our faith with us to work makes for a better workplace and a more successful business!"

King Husein is competing for a Gold, Silver, or Bronze medal, which will be announced and awarded on Aug. 24 virtually at Dare to Overcome. Dare to Overcome is the Religious Freedom & Business Foundation’s global intersectionality conference, highlighting the ways diverse communities support and reinforce one another to build more inclusive workplaces and peaceful societies.

Background on the Awards

The Global Business & Interfaith Peace Awards are presented biennially by the Religious Freedom & Business Foundation, a US-based nonprofit, in cooperation with the United Nations Global Compact’s Business for Peace initiative. The foundation helps educate the global business community about how religious freedom is good for business and how they can promote respect for freedom of religion or belief.

The awards are held in tandem with the opening of the Paralympic Games, including previously being held in Rio de Janeiro in 2016 and in Seoul in 2018. This year they will be held during RFBF’s Dare to Overcome event, Aug. 22-24, 2021, both virtually worldwide and in-person in Tokyo (due to pandemic restrictions, limited to those already in Japan) .

In the short video below, the global chair of the Global Business & Interfaith Peace Awards, Dr. Brian Grim (also president of the Religious Freedom & Business Foundation), shares the inspiration for these awards, followed by brief reflections by former UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon and former Japanese Prime Minister Yukio Hatoyama.

ArtMattan Films New Acquisition Puerto Rican Film ANGELICA Gets Virtual Theatrical Date Set to August 20, 2021

Angelica by Marisol Gómez-Mouakad

Angelica Poster

Angelica and her dolls

ANGELICA is a psychological drama that exposes the implications of racism and sexism upon a family and its members in Puerto Rico.

Purposely challenging the Eurocentric beauty standards that blatantly plague Latin America, Puerto Rican director Gómez-Mouakad tells the story of an empowered Afro-Latina fighting colorism at home.”

— Remezcla

NEW YORK, NY, UNITED STATES, July 29, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — ArtMattan Films, the film distribution arm of ArtMattan Productions, has announced the acquisition and virtual theatrical release of award-winning drama ANGELICA by Marisol Gómez-Mouakad.

ANGELICA is a psychological drama that exposes the implications of racism and sexism upon the family and individual, reflecting upon how the oppressive nature of both racism and sexism, affects family relations and the individual.

Angelica, after a long absence from Puerto Rico, returns home when her father, Wilfredo, suffers a stroke. This unexpected return and her father's illness force Angelica to re-evaluate her relationship with her mother and family members who don't accept her because of her skin color. She must face herself and discovers that she does not know who she is. After her father's death, Angelica must decide whether to return to the comfort of her previous life, dissatisfied, but secure, or set on an adventurous path to rediscover herself as an independent, modern, strong, black, and Puerto Rican woman.

“People talk about racism and sexism in the U.S.,” Gómez-Mouakad explains. “They may not do much, but in talking about it they are at least addressing the problem. In Puerto Rico — and across the Caribbean and Latin America — there is a lot of denial. If you do talk about the issues, you are accused of being over sensitive. But words have power and words can hurt.” ~ director Marisol Gómez-Mouakad

ANGELICA is set to get a virtual release in major markets including New York, Los Angeles and Chicago on August 20. The virtual release will be followed by a digital and home-video release.

"Purposely challenging the Eurocentric beauty standards that blatantly plague Latin America on and off screen, Puerto Rican director Marisol Gómez-Mouakad sets out to tell the story of an empowered Afro-Latina fighting colorism at home in her debut feature Angélica." ~ Remezcla

"In addition to the theme of racism, the film touches upon the implications of machismo in a patriarchal society from the perspective of women." ~ Repeating Islands

"Another glorious, glorious portrait on race and the roles women play—by pressure, by tradition, by choice. " ~ Guilie Castillo Oriard

Marisol is a Puerto Rican filmmaker and painter who completed a Masters at the New School in New York. She also participated in various screenwriting and acting workshops. She was selected to participate in IFP Project Involve workshops in the spring of 2005 and Talent Campus Guadalajara in 2009. Her first and second short film, Rosa and Lazos respectively, have premiered in various international film festivals. ANGELICA is her first feature film.
