Film tells of battle vs. Hispanic stereotypesby La Monica Everett-haynes on Aug. 27, 2007, under Education, Family, Local
A documentary about how Hispanic journalists worked to dismantle stereotypes about the Latino community in California will be screened in Tucson on Tuesday.
“Below the Fold: The Pulitzer That Defined Latino Journalism,” by Roberto Gudiño, is about a group of reporters at the Los Angeles Times in 1984.
Gudiño interviewed those involved with the original articles for the 26-minute documentary.
The University of Arizona’s Media, Democracy & Policy Initiative produced the film, which will be shown at 7 p.m. at The Loft Cinema, 3233 E. Speedway Blvd.
The three-year-old, nonprofit initiative was created to look into how the Hispanic population was represented.
The screening will include a discussion and guests including Nancy Rivera Brooks, George Ramos, Louis Sahagun and Frank Sotomayor.
Tickets are $5 and can be purchased at the Loft. To learn more, call 626-3731.
