Abstract: A script and proposal was written for a then funded NEH Production grant proposal. Everything Seemed Possible: Luis Muñoz Marín and the Making of a Modern Puerto Rico (working title), a 90-minute documentary in English and Spanish about an era of radical transformation in Puerto Rico, a country whose fascinating and complicated relationship with the United States is not well known or understood.
