Emma Jones: Summer Intern at LASC

In my academic and cultural experiences, I have not had a lot of exposure to Latin American history and culture. To learn more about this rich history and expand my knowledge, I will be watching and analyzing movies about events and issues involving Latin American culture. My goal is to show how these movies come across through my point of view, that being of someone who doesn’t know that much about the events depicted. I will see if these movies succeed in accurately portraying the historical events and/or culture by looking more into the past and will analyze the impact. Each week I will do a different movie and I’d love to comment on it with all of you!

Please share your thoughts and or movie recommendations so we can reflect on these movies together!
