No Latinos in the Movies.

Latino movie stars played a leading role the night of the Oscars. But aside from filmmaker Guillermo del Toro, most served as presenters. The critics also warn that despite Los Angeles being home to the film and television industry and to the largest Latino population in the US, Hollywood closes doors on Latinos. Dozens rallied in front of the Dolby Theater urging top studio executives to increase on-screen and behind-the-camera roles for Latinos and improve media portrayals of Latinos. This program also includes an interview with Chilean filmmaker Sebastián Lelio, winner of the Oscar for best foreign language film for his movie “A Fantastic Woman.”

Guests: Alex Nogales, President and Executive Director, National Hispanic Media Coalition, Los Angeles; Sebastián Lelio, Film Director, “A Fantastic Woman,” Santiago de Chile; Guillermo del Toro, Filmmaker, Los Angeles, CA (Audio Cut from Oscar Acceptance Speech).
