Latino Public Broadcasting (LPB) will premiere new online short films on PBS.org as part of its celebration of Hispanic Heritage Month.
Frontera! Revolt and Rebellion on the Rio Grande is an animated short from Chicano media artist John Jota Leaños and the three-part New American Girls profiles three “DREAMers,” part of the estimated 1.8 million young adults brought to the U.S. as children by undocumented parents who remain stuck in limbo, without a pathway to citizenship. These new shorts will be available for online viewing on September 15 at PBS.org.
