The Film

The award winning Visiones: Latino Art and Culture is a journey through the music, words, dance, painting, and performance of rich Latino cultures made more complex and fascinating by their history in our country.

The six-part series explores how contemporary Latino artists continue to build on rich traditions that reflect a unique multi-ethnic experience, taking established art forms and reinventing them, constantly challenging themselves and the communities which nurture them. From New York City’s break-dancers to mural-painters in Los Angeles and Chicago to theater in Texas, the series offers a unique cross section of Latino artists working today.
