Literature and film Dominican Republic
By Amy Adejokun Amy Adejokun Section editor

Discover Literature and film

Rarely translated, few Dominican literature novels make their way across the Atlantic. The writers that cannot be ignored are Jose Joaquin Perez and Salome Urena de Henriquez, both from the end of the 19th century. They are the founders of the Dominican Republic's national literature. The author of 'Enriquillo', Manuel Jesus Galvan deserves a mention. Dominican cinemas are not crowded, unless an American film is showing.
