The Latina Power Pipeline
The Latinx community has millions of stories to tell and talented Latinas poised to tell them. But, according to a recent study, only 3 Latinas worked as directors from 2007-2019, and only 7% of films from this period featured a Latinx lead or co-lead. Even with Latinx audiences leading the charge at the box office, representation in front of and behind the camera does not reflect community realities in terms of numbers or growth. This is one of the issues The Latinx House is tackling head-on. Join The Latinx House and this talented group of Latina creators, activists, and filmmakers as they discuss solutions to Hollywood's Latinx diversity problem, and what they're each doing to address it in their respective careers.
