Moody Movie Club: Vida
July 23, 2020 4:00 pm – 5:30 pm
About the Event:
Join the University of Texas (UT) at Austin's Moody Movie Club for a discussion about the groundbreaking pilot episode of the Starz series, Vida.
Vida is a raw and fiercely sympathetic story of two estranged sisters reunited when their mother’s death brings them back to East LA, and it demonstrates what a television series can look like when Latina and Latinx voices are placed front and center. The show, which recently completed its third and final season, is visually immersive, emotionally authentic, and unapologetic in its representation of LGBTQ+ stories and the complex and multifaceted nature of Latinidad.
Moderator: Mary Beltran, associate professor and Director of Latino Media Arts & Studies Program.
Special Guests: Tanya Saracho, creator and showrunner, Lindsey Villarreal, writer and JoAnne Yarrow, editor.
