latino films

Just made a list of Latino-themed/focused films I’d like to re-watch and maybe write up a quick review for in the next few months. I’m going to keep adding to this list as I re-watch in spare time but here are a few of the films I’m thinking on:

The Three Burials of Melquiades Estrada Mi Familia Milagro Beanfield War Frida
 Stand and Deliver Manito The Ballad of Gregorio Cortez Girlfight
El Norte La Mission Bread and Roses Selena
 American Me Real Women Have Curves A Day without a Mexican Undefeated
Walkout Zoot Suit  La Bamba  El Cantante

John Paul Jaramillo’s debut story collection The House of Order was named a 2013 Int’l Latino Book Award Finalist, and his most recent work Little Mocos is now available from Twelve Winters Press. In 2013 Latino Boom: An Anthology of U.S. Latino Literature listed Jaramillo as one of its Top 10 New Latino Authors to Watch and Read. He is currently a professor of composition and literature at Lincoln Land College-Springfield, Illinois.
