This was a phenomenal documentary. I thoroughly enjoyed it. Coming from the MS Delta, I’m amazed that the kind of harsh rhetoric and racial divide still exists in the Hispanic/Anglo community. Seeing that barbed wire fence between the Anglo and the Hispanic graves was jarring and very sad. View this post on Facebook.

Powerful movie. Sadly many places still are treating people like they are less than in this era. This should be a Must see for everyone, right up with Grapes Of Wrath, for a glimpse of our dark US history. View this post on Facebook.

This brings back a lot of bad memories for me being of Mexican/ Anglo with an Hispanic name growing up. I felt like the black child did in Imitation of Life. it was not until I moved did I feel less discrimination because my surname was very unusual and we pronounced it different so no one even knew it was Spanish. Yes it was Texas. View this post on Facebook.

Amazing documentary. Born in 1945, sixty-six years in Seattle, four in Austin Texas. Giant is a history lesson every American needs to watch. I saw the film decades ago. It now has new meaning. I’m going to read the book and watch the film again, with brand-new eyes. Looking forward to a road trip to Marfa soon. Bravo!  View this post on Facebook.

Historically, it has always been a struggle for both male and female Latinos in Hollywood but that is true for all people of color. How many Latin, Asian, Arab, or Native American Academy Award winners or even nominees do you know of? A very scant few. Many people of color had to anglicize their names to get jobs and/or not be stereotyped. Hollywood has made some progress but not real significant progress and not fast enough to correct the imbalance of representation of different peoples of color in the entertainment industry on both sides of the camera.

 I always wonder why so many people purse this profession. What is the success rate of people who can survive as actors and actresses 2% at best? Why are there so many people clamoring to have a career with a 98% chance of failure. How can they afford it? I hear people say acting is the only thing that they are passionate about. Don’t most actors and actresses spend the majority of their time auditioning and not acting? View this post on Facebook.

Such a rich country in so many ways. I’m glad the people are finding their courage and strength to fight back against the drug cartels. The people of Mexico deserve safety, stability, and joy back in their lives. My husband and I lived there from 2001-2005. The people are so loving and non-judgmental. That’s something we could learn from here in the States. View this post on Facebook.

Pedro Guerrero had professional relationships with three instrumental and important artists. His photos are first class like the man. He is from my father’s generation of Americans with integrity and a strong work ethic. If you have a chance to see this, do so, it’s fascinating and a hidden jewel. Que VIVA Pedro.
