ABOUT THE FILM-

Tejana singer Selena was on the brink of blockbuster crossover fame when her murder at age 23 catapulted her into mainstream celebrity. Filmmaker Lourdes Portillo gazes beyond the tabloids and points a sensitive lens on the cultural sensation that emerged around Selena’s life and death. A compassionate collage that features starry-eyed teenaged fans, poignant interviews with Selena’s family, and lively exchanges with Latina intellectuals who debate her value as a role model. The film offers a fresh look at how this unique Mexican American voice still echoes in the hearts of her fans.
