san diego independent media center presents... GRINGO IN MAÑANALAND (DeeDee Hallack)

"Documentary about the strained relations that Latin America has with the United States. Halleck says at the beginning that the images of Latin America she saw in Hollywood films didn't match the reality she knew growing up in Cuba. She then uses footage of old Hollywood films, newsreels and corporate advertising films to show that, even in the early 20th century, these problematic relations between Latin America and the US were well known to Americans, even if they didn't want to recognize them."

Followed by a discussion of the role of media in perpetuating racism.

PLUS: SNAX! drinks! STORYTELLING! media-making!

The San Diego Independent Media Center has been questioning authority and facilitating communication in solidarity with communities since 2001.
