"Semilla de Fuego": Omar Iloy, Lxs de Abajo and Producciones Tabaquero Collaborate on Another Spoken Word Visual
If you are one to follow the the independent poetry and film movements in Puerto Rico, you might have been noticing the most recent collaborations between the west-based artists Omar Iloy, Lxs de Abajo and Producciones Tabaquero such as “Finca Soleda” and “Puñeta en Inglés.” In addition, you might have seen how their project "La Madre de Juracan" won prizes such as “Mejor Actor Masculino” and “Mejor Fotografia” at the Premios Latino de Iberoamerica 2018. Recently, in mid-August, the group got together once again to release their latest project, “Semilla de Fuego,” a spoken word visual that sees Omar Iloy presenting his blend of thought provoking poetry and music while touching on subject matter such as his life, politics, social issues and the current state of Puerto Rico. Furthermore, the presentation is enhanced by the simple yet poetic visuals by Producciones Tabaquero’s crew. Take a look at the video below.
