HECTOR TOBAR, THE LATIN HEAT STORY, RIC SALINAS, THE CHÁVEZ MOVIE AND MORE–THIS WEEK ON LATINOPIA!
Hola Latinopians! This week’s new videos are in LITERATURE and CINEMA. Our lit video is a visit with Pulitzer Prize winning journalist HECTOR TOBAR. A long time reporter, columnist and critic for the Los Angeles Times newspaper, Hector is also the author of three books. Hector shares with us how his novel “The Barbarian Nurseries“ came about. Our other video this week is an interview with Bel Hernández, the pioneering editor and publisher of Latin Heat Magazine. Latinopia learned that the magazine, now 22 years old, began as a protest newsletter and has morphed into a digital format, website, and now television productions. Don’t miss THE LATIN HEAT STORY PART ONE. We’ll have Part Two next week.
And more blogs this week. Luis Torres returns with a review of the play “PLACAS: THE MOST DANGEROUS TATOO” starring Ric Salinas of Culture Clash fame. Eduardo Díaz returns with his MIRÁNDOLO BIEN blog. This week he reviews of the new César Chávez biopic by director Diego Luna. Angela Ortiz’s new PHOTO OF THE WEEK is a unique view of “Downtown Los Angeles,” and watch for more Zombie Mex Diaries as Lazaro turns Zombie mind reader.
Lots to read, watch, and enjoy this week on Latinopia.com!
