Newly Funded: ITVS is Pleased to Announce Funding for Christina Ibarra’s Marthas

Posted on March 14, 2012

ITVS recently approved funding for the documentary Marthas by filmmakers Christina Ibarra (Director/Co-Producer) and Erin Ploss-Campoamor (Co-Producer).

Marthas is a one-hour documentary that follows the year-long preparations of Mexican American teenagers debuting in the annual Martha Washington Society Ball in Laredo, Texas. The Ball, a unique 112-year-old colonial-themed celebration of George Washington and exclusive to daughters of Society members, is the stage where privilege and legacy are on display, provoking questions about patriotism, tradition, history, identity and the role of women along the border.
