ISLEÑOS

A root of America.


This documentary describes the fascinating history of the descendants of two thousand Canary Islanders who emigrated through the Atlantic Ocean to Louisiana in 1777 to reinforce the defenses of the Spanish colony and settled on the outskirts of New Orleans. The role of this community over US History overtakes manifestly its small size and shows us the power of different cultures in the construction of American identity.
