Faculty Neyda Martinez is a Sundance Producers Lab Fellow for BARTOLO

Neyda Martinez, Interim Director of the Media Management Program & Associate Professor of Professional Practice in Media Management is a Sundance Producers Lab Fellow for ‘Bartolo’ (U.S.A. – Puerto Rico).

Bartolo (U.S.A.- Puerto Rico)
Producing Fellow: Neyda Martinez

Tucked into the rural coffee-growing mountainside of remote western Puerto Rico is a tiny hamlet, Bartolo. It is home to an isolated agricultural community of just 12 families, landless and chronically impoverished, and longing for a new start following Hurricane Maria. The community seizes on a chance for a new beginning when a veteran organizer from outside of Bartolo comes to town with a radical new plan.


The Producers Lab Fellows program has been covered in The Hollywood Reporter, Variety, Deadline, The Wrap, Filmmaker Magazine, and ScreenDaily.
