Movies 

Quinceañera takes a look at what happens when teenage sexuality, age-old rituals and real estate prices collide. It is a story fueled by the racial, class and sexual tensions of a Latino neighborhood in transition.  

From two-time Academy Award-winner Pedro Almodóvar comes Volver, a comedic and compassionate tribute to women and their resilience in the face of life's most outrageous tribulations.  

This coming of age tale Mosquita & Mari follows a pair of Latina teens who fall in love against the backdrop of Southeast Los Angeles.  

Bad Education, another film by Almodóvar, is a tale of desire, revenge and murder.  

Documentaries  

Inocente delivers a glimpse inside the life of a homeless, undocumented 15-year-old girl and the extraordinary challenges she must contend with on a daily basis. 

After 63 years of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, nine Argentine directors decided to undertake a difficult task: to picture the state of human rights in their country. The nine creative documentary shorts that make up D-Humanos are a reflection of their country and its people's idiosyncrasies, problems and aspirations.

Visiones: Latino Art & Culture - Episode 5 highlights the Taco Shop Poets of Southern California, early tent theater of the Southwest and performance art in San Francisco.  

The Deportation of Innocence tells the story of four children and their immigrant families as they struggle to come to terms with deportation and the long-lasting effects this has had on their lives. 

Dolores tells the story of Dolores Huerta, one of the most important yet least known activists in American history. An equal partner in co-founding the first farm workers unions with Cesar Chavez, her contributions have gone largely unrecognized.  

Flamenco School shows how a New Mexico teacher and community organizer brought a Hispanic dance to America.  

The Latino List: Vol. 1 presents a glimpse into Hispanic American culture through a series of video portraits of Latinos who have contributed to the fabric of contemporary society.  

The Latino List: Vol. 2 features interviews with a cross-section of Hispanic Americans from a variety of professions, disciplines and backgrounds, each speaking to the unique struggles and triumphs they have faced.  

By 2050, Latin Americans could be the American majority. Yet from a clampdown on 'illegal' Latino immigrants, to a wave of hate crimes, this Latino expansion is experiencing some acute growing pains. Learn more by watching The Whole Enchilada
