Puerto Rican poet Julia de Burgos enjoyed a brilliant career in the 1930s and '40s but died broke and forgotten in New York in 1953. This worshipful 2003 portrait by Ivonne Belen draws on the poet's letters and her family's testimony to tell the story of Burgos's unhappy life, illustrating it with archival footage and dramatic reenactments. Heartfelt and handsomely made, with recitations of her work by prominent actors, writers, and artists, this should please Burgos's admirers, but the uninitiated will have a hard time understanding her place in Latin letters, and her left-wing politics get less attention than the tortured romantic life that inspired much of her verse. In Spanish with subtitles. 100 min.
