Product Description

Spanish with English Subtitles

Considered one of the best Puerto Rican films in recent years, this documentary offers a post-modern look at the history and impact of the U.S. invasion and occupation of the island.

Seva Vive (Seva Lives) is the groundbreaking, critically-acclaimed documentary that surprised audiences during the theatrical release and became an international success. It's an entertaining, thought-provoking, and funny look at history that challenges the documentary genre itself.

How is history written? Is there truth to peoples' versions of their own history? Seva Vive redefines Puerto Rican history to explore the issues that arise when fiction meddles with recollections of the past. It illustrates the conflict between official written history and the collective memory of the people of Puerto Rico, who still struggle with the United States' invasion of the island after the Spanish-American War in 1898.

When a fictional story reimagining the U.S. invasion was published in a widely-read newspaper in Puerto Rico, its readers believed it as fact. But like the infamous chaos-inducing Orson Welles radio dramatization of the War of the Worlds, the story was utter fiction simply taken as reality.

Inspired by the book Seva by acclaimed author Luis López Nieves.


"One of the best Puerto Rican movies of the year." --Primera Hora

"Seva Vive is amazing. Four out of four stars." --El Nuevo Día
