‘Latinos Beyond the Reel’ Screening Celebrates National Hispanic Heritage Month

In recognition of National Hispanic Heritage Month, a special screening of Latinos Beyond the Reel: Challenging a Media Stereotype will be held on Tuesday, Oct. 3, at 7 p.m. in Room 104 of College Hall.

The documentary by Miguel Picker and Chyng Sun follows the cinematic portrayal of Latin Americans, encompassing stereotypes, images and thought-provoking segments that challenge the media’s depiction of Latin American men and women as one-dimensional characters.

A brief presentation and discussion will immediately follow the screening.

The screening is sponsored by the Departments of Modern Languages and Literatures, History and Sociology, the Office of Diversity and Inclusion, and the Dean’s Office of McAnulty College and Graduate School of Liberal Arts.

The event is free and open to the campus community. For more information, call 412.396.6415.
