MACS faculty provide commentary for new movie
Associate Professor Isabel Moline-Guzman and Professor Angharad Valdivia provided commentary for a new release Latinos Beyond Reel: Challenging a Media Stereotype now available from the Media Education Foundation.
In Latinos Beyond Reel, filmmakers Miguel Picker and Chyng Sun examine how US news and entertainment media portray -- and do not portray -- Latinos. Drawing on the insights of Latino scholars, journalists, community leaders, actors, directors, and producers, they uncover a pattern of gross misrepresentation and gross under-representation -- a world in which Latinos tend to appear, if at all, as gangsters and Mexican bandits, harlots and prostitutes, drug dealers and welfare-leeching illegals.
