Talento

Looking for American Latino talent?  Here you go.  This is a personally curated, I-vouch list of writers/directors who bring a distinct POV to thier work.   Its heavy on film, but I’ll be including more and more TV centric names.  I’ve linked each name to the most appropriate bio/project website.  And again, this is a list of Latinos in the U.S. context.  It is SO important to make this distinction for cultural and class reasons. Often the most recognized “Latino” creators are in fact international; Latin American filmmakers who gained recognition making films in their country of origin and were able to translate that into opportunities here in the U.S., or people who have the resources to move to the U.S. and attend the best film school.  I’ve got nothing but love for them.  My point however is we need to boost the 2nd/3rd et al generations who don’t have the luxury of these kind of access points… which results in such a dire lack of representation, not to mention cool unique stories.
