THIS WEEK ON LATINOPIA: LUÍS QUINTERO ON DIRECTING LA HORA DEL TÉ, LATINOPIA SHOWCASE “LA HORA DEL TÉ,” DR. ALVARO HUERTA ON “A BRIEF HISTORY OF MEXICAN IMMIGRATION,” AND LINKS TO BLOGS BY OUR BELOVED DON FELÍPE DE ORTEGO Y GASCA.
This week we showcase the work of Chicano writer and director Luís Ramon Quintero. We begin with an interview with Luís as he speaks about his approach to filmmaking and how his short drama “La Hora del Té” (Tea Time) came about. Also on the bill is the film in question, “La Hora del Té,” a poignant and touching story of how a young girl faces the sudden death of her mother.
Also this week blogger Dr. Alvaro Huerta returns with his Fierce Politics column. This week Dr. Huerta examines the real history of Mexican immigration in light of the disparaging attacks on immigrants by the Trump administration. If you have any questions about Dr. Huerta’ s historical rendering, just look it all up in a history book! Huerta speaks truth to power.
And we are posting here the link to the archive blogsite for all the Latinopia articles that were written by Don Felípe de Ortego y Gasca before his passing last month.
