Being ñ explores the distinct, shared experience of 16 million people living in the U.S. today called Enyes (ñ)s. Enyes (ñ)s are first generation American born Latinos with at least one parent from a Spanish speaking country. A central theme of many Enyes’ experience growing up in the U.S. is not feeling fully connected with either the mainstream American culture, or with the culture of their parent’s country of origin.
The short subject documentary presents the inspiring, personal story of Denise Soler Cox; the co-founder of being ñ, and a first time Latina filmmaker, as she tries to launch a social movement and trigger a massive cultural awakening and build connection among American born Latinos.
