The Bronze Screen: 100 Years of the Latino Image in Hollywood

The Bronze screen honors the past, illuminates the present, and opens a window to the future of Latinos in motion pictures.

Rare and extensive footage traces the progression of this distorted screen image to the increased prominence of today’s Latino actors, writers and directors.  Length:  120 minutes.
