El Canto de los Coquis is an MFA short film that follows the journey of Elena, a young Puerto Rican American woman who is visiting her family in Puerto Rico for the first time. Her excitement for the land and culture are shaken when her dual identity creates a rift of not being American or Latina enough. Through the support of those around her, Elena discovers the joy in finding who we are and the acceptance in learning we are always searching for those answers. No matter what, the people we surround ourselves with and their love will always fill us with the sense of returning home.
