An index of works by Puerto Rican creators/centered about the Puerto Rican experience. May also include Puerto Rican creators.

Please note that just featuring a Puerto Rican creator or character is not enough to make a work a good fit. For example, the late Raúl Juliá would be fine to include. His films Street Fighter, The Addams Family, or Presumed Innocent would not.
