Clip: Season 15 Episode 12

In this excerpt from the Independent Lens documentary Las Marthas, it’s two days before this U.S.-Mexico border version of a Colonial ball, a tradition like no other, as participating debutantes practice entrances and bowing while wearing their cumbersome gowns. Rosario is nervous about all the details she has to remember as a newcomer to the tradition, while maintaining grace under pressure.
