Cimarrón Spirit explores a Dominican Republic culture.

In time for Black History Month is the release of Cimarrón Spirit, a film that explores the culture and beliefs of the cimarrones—people in the Dominican Republic who trace their heritage to escaped African slaves and the Taíno Indians. Through their celebrations, they shaped defiant responses to society's attempts to isolate them. The film is in Spanish with English subtitles.
