Fundraising campaign “Isabel Rosado: Nacionalista”

Dear Friends and Family:

I’m Melissa Montero, the director and producer of the documentary: Isabel Rosado: Nacionalista (working-title). I’ve launched a fundraising campaign online through indiegogo.com, which is a crowd funding website. I have set to raise for a goal of $10,000 and have 42 days left on my campaign. So far I’ve raised $1,160 online.
On the campaign home page, you can read further on what the film is about and what exactly I will be using the funds for and of course you can view the trailer. You will also see what the perks are for donating. Any contribution amount truly makes a difference and goes a long way. From $5 to $500 it will all be greatly appreciated.

Below is a synopsis on the film:

Isabel Rosado: Nationalist (working title), is an hour long documentary that features the life and times of Isabel Rosado, a centenarian, who at 30 years of age joined the Puerto Rican Nationalist Party and dedicated her life to the Puerto Rican independence movement. Through her story– as a Party member Isabel collected funds, sewed flags, delivered messages, cared for the stricken leader Don Pedro Albizu Campos, and took up arms in the fight for independence. We learn about the colonial relationship between Puerto Rico and the US and Puerto Rico’s struggle for independence. Isabel, spending approximately 12 years in prison, has become a revered symbol of colonial resistance in Puerto Rico. Her life is a testament to the island’s unresolved conflict with political status, economic development, and a century-long struggle for independence. Isabel Rosado:Nationalist, chronicles the life of a woman of humble means who risked it all, endured persecution, and had her civil rights violated. Not only does her story highlight the central problem of colonialism but it also represents a marginalized community who for many years struggled for their nation’s right to self determination and sovereignty.

It’s important to make this film and document our unknown Puerto Rican history. The story of Isabel and the Puerto Rican Nationalist party is very much hidden part of our history. I’d like to make this film in order to contribute to our educational awareness and also to share Isabel’s legacy.

If you have any questions please feel free to email me.
