Join Latino Public Broadcasting and Bridge Strategies as we host an innovative screening and dicussion of the new PBS/VOCES documentary, Now en Español.

The evening will begin with a catered reception where attendees will engage in warm-up activities, followed by a screening of the documentary and Q&A with the director and actresses.

About the documentary: Now en Español follows the travails of five Latina acresses in Los Angeles who dub Desparate Housewives, for Spanish language audiences in the U.S. These dynamic women struggle to persue their Hollywood careers, while balancing the responsibilities of paying rent and raising children. As they come up against an industry that offers little by way of balanced or compelling roles, their elusive success reveals the persistent inequities of Latino representation in the American media.

About the series: VOCES is a documentary series aimed at showcasing independent Latino voices, and the depth and brilliance of the Latino cultural heritage. This series is produced in partnership with Latino Public Broadcasting, PBS and presented by PBS SoCal. Support comes from the Corporation for Public Broadcasting, NALAC, and the National Endowment for the Arts.

Latino Public Broadcasting & Media Arts Center San DIego

Media Art Center San Diego (MACSD) grew out of the expansion of the San Diego Latino Film Festival (SDLFF), which originated in 1993. MACSD’s Programming Philosophy is based on the organization’s founding vision: to challenge the historical exclusion of under-represented communities from the media arts field, and distorted images of these communities by mainstream media. The organization’s annual film festival introduces San Diego audiences to contemporary U.S-Latino and Latin American cinema that is otherwise unavailable.  Educational, creative and production oriented programs reach underserved youth, and residents while providing MACSD with opportunities for community-based collaborations and the ability to fulfill our mission.

Latino Public Broadcasting is the leader of the development, production, acquisition and distribution of non-commercial, educational and cultural media that is representative of Latino people, or address issues of particular interest to Latino Americans. These programs are produced for dissemination to the public broadcasting stations and other public telecommunication entities. LPB provides a voice to the diverse Latino community on public media throughout the U.S.
