Trinity University will celebrate Latinx Heritage Month with five separate presentations by a diverse group of artists who will showcase their cultural experiences. All events are on campus and are free and open to the public.
For this second event of the series, Cristina Ibarra, director and producer, will lead a conversation via Skype about her film, Las Martas, which also will be screened. Ibarra has made award-winning films that explore the U.S.-Mexico border for the last 16 years. The New York Times calls Las Martas, “a striking alternative portrait of border life.” She is a Sundance Women’s Initiative fellow and serves on the Sundance Alumni Diversity Outreach Committee. Her new documentary feature, The Infiltrators, will be completed next year.
The Latinx Heritage Month series is made possible by Norma E. Cantú, the Norine R. and T. Frank Murchison Professor of the Humanities at Trinity University; the MAS Program; the Department of Modern Languages and Literatures; and Women and Gender Studies.
