'Little Spain' de Manhattan chega em grande tela, documentando a imigração latino-americano na cidade de Nova York: diferenças entre revisões

In the film, the Spanish-American director and journalist Artur Balder trace the journey of those who left Spain and {{w|South America}} in search of a better life in the United States, describing the story of its most important entrance port, New York City, and the formation of the Little Spain community.
The result is a sixty minute, feature-length, documentary lookinglooks back at the founding of La Nacional in 1868 and the uptick in migration from Spain following its loss of Cuba in 1898; continuing through to the Hispanic apex in the area, after the {{w|Spanish Civil War}} of 1936–1939, finally charting the community’s sharp decline in the 1970s and 1980s.
Well into the 1960s, with Spanish still commonly spoken on 14th Street, the film also displays footage of the Santiago Apóstol, or St. James Day, festival, which "died out" in the early 1990s as a consequence of the steady exodus of the remnants of the Hispanic community from that part of the city.
