Numbering more than 53 million, U.S. Latinos are transforming communities in which they settle, work, and raise families. While their national backgrounds and personal histories vary widely, their lives are deeply interconnected by attachments that span the Americas. Latino lives are at once quintessentially “American” and yet increasingly transnational—linked to Latin America by history and memory, money and politics, migration, and the shared dream of a better life. This second Latino Film Festival and Conference showcases the “Transnational Lives” that define Latina/o experiences in the United States mainland and beyond. Multiple scholars and filmmakers will be present, including Edward James Olmos and Chon Noriega (UCLA). All films are in English and/or Spanish languages with English subtitles.

Event sponsors include Latino Studies Program, College of Arts and Sciences’ Ostrom Grants Program, College Arts & Humanities Institute, La Casa – IU Latino Cultural Center, Department of Spanish & Portuguese, Department of American Studies, Center for Latin American & Caribbean Studies, Black Film Center/Archive Department of Communication & Culture, Department of History and Vice President for Diversity, Equity and Multicultural Affairs (DEMA) and IU Cinema.
