ABOUT THE FILM-

In 2001, LPB offered a call for emerging producers to create a one minute interstitial that showcased or represented the Latino community for general audiences. Ten projects were selected ranging from animation to biographies. Many of these producers have moved forward in their careers and are NOW producing nationally for public and commercial television. In 2009, the interstitials are now offered online.

La Tejana Parionaria is a character portrayal of Emma Tenayuca “La Pasionaria,” leader of the striking pecan-shellers in 1939 Texas.  Voiceovers tell details about Emma’s story and her struggles to bring justice to the pecan-shellers.
