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.
Is My Neighbor Latino? is a light humorous view at what a Latino neighbor may look like. A person wonders if their new neighbor may be Latino, as this neighbor does not fit the common stereotype of a Latino. He asks a popular newscaster, and she goes out to investigate what signs demonstrate the “Latinness” of this person.
