THIS WEEK ON LATINOPIA: CARLOS AVILA ON DIRECTING DURING THE PANDEMIC, ARMANDO VAZQUEZ-RAMOS ON THE PANDEMIC ACROSS THE U.S. MEXICO BORDER, ALVARO HUERTA ON A RED BRICK AND JOE BIDEN, AND PASO DEL NORTE WITH LOS POCHOS.
This week we continue with our Latinopia Platicas. First we talk with filmmaker and television director Carlos Avila and learn how Latino directors in Hollywood are coping with the coronavirus pandemic. Also this week Dr. Armando Vazquez-Ramos of the California Mexico Studies Center tells of the letter he sent to California Gov. Gavin Newsom warning of the danger of the pandemic crossing the U.S. Mexico border in both directions if precautions are not taken. And this week Alvaro Huerta returns with his Fierce Politics blog, this time he recalls a childhood toy and how it may relates to the candidacy of Joe Biden for President of the United States.
And to liven us up in this time of coronavirus, we visit with the Conjunto Los Pochos as they perform a classic border ballad, Paso del Norte.
Enjoy your week on Latinopia and keep social distancing!
