LATINO: THE CHANGING FACE OF AMERICA
(58 min) US
[watch trailer]

Director/Producer: Roxanne Frias

Description:
A revolution is occurring in the United States, a demographic revolution, and I am part of it.

I'm an American raised to be proud of my Mexican heritage. I'm a Latina. This is the story of my people. Currently, 55 million Latinos live in the U.S., a number projected to double in approximately 35 years when nearly one in three people in the United States will be Latino. Latino, the Changing Face of America, explores this demographic revolution through my own story, as a daughter of Mexican immigrants, and through the stories of Hispanic students, teachers, and immigrant families, whom I encounter as I travel across the country. For so long considered second-class citizens, Latinos are now taking their rightful place in society. And, with their fast growing numbers, they’re changing the political landscape of the United States. Latino: The Changing Face of America examines this new America.

Biography:
