Las Marthas

Get Involved

Community Cinema is a national civic engagement initiative featuring free screenings of films from the Emmy Award-winning PBS series Independent Lens. Presented by ITVS in partnership with local public television stations and community organizations, these in-person events and online social screenings bring community members together to learn, discuss, and get involved in key social issues of our time.

What is the importance of carrying on cultural traditions? Start a conversation in your community inspired by the debutantes in Las Marthas, who turn a gilded tradition into a modern-day expression of Mexican-American identity and society.
