(80 Minute Screening, 30 Minute Discussion)

"LATINOS BEYOND REEL is a hard-hitting documentary about how Latinos are marginalized and vilified in the U.S. media—with grave consequences."One in six adults and one in four children in the US are Latinos, but their reality is rarely depicted in the mainstream media. Interviews of scholars, actors, filmmakers, and Latino children reveal a striking pattern: in both news and entertainment, Latinos are overwhelmingly represented in narrow and negative ways, as people who are a drain on, and a threat to, society. Most disturbingly, children’s games and cartoons contain violent connotations against Latinos. This film documents the history, evolution, and meanings of these images, and how they deeply and harmfully affect Latinos, and the nation as a whole.
