KQED is thrilled to host a double film screening to commemorate Latino Heritage Month at the School of Arts and Culture at the Mexican Heritage Plaza with a FREE screening of Stable Life and an episode from Latino Americans.
Experience life in the stables at a California racetrack as Dionicia M. works long hours caring for racehorses while her teenage son José Luis is turning heads as a hotshot apprentice jockey. Will they succeed or will their lack of immigration papers prevent them from achieving the stable life of their dreams?
LATINO AMERICANS is led by Emmy Award-winning series producer Adriana Bosch and documents the evolution of a new “Latino American” identity from the 1500s to the present day, featuring interviews with close to 100 Latinos from the worlds of politics, business and pop culture — including Herman Badillo, Dolores Huerta, Gloria Estefan and Rita Moreno — as well as deeply personal portraits of lesser-known Latinos who lived through key chapters in American history.
