In June of 2012, Women Make Movies, The Robert Flaherty Film Seminar and the Museum of Modern Art collaborated on a film exhibition profiling the work of Lourdes Portillo. The exhibition, titled Lourdes Portillo: La Cineasta Inquisitiva, was very well received. In 2013 and 2014, the program is moving outside of NYC to venues throughout the country so that others have the opportunity to celebrate her work!

For over 30 years, Academy Award® nominee Lourdes Portillo’s award-winning films have explored Latin American, Mexican, and Chicano experiences and social justice issues. She has produced and directed over a dozen works in her signature hybrid style as a visual artist, investigative journalist, and activist. Born in Chihuahua, Mexico and raised in Los Angeles, Portillo studied at the San Francisco Art Institute in the 1970s and 1980s, where she was immersed in Chicano and avant-garde cinema, social issue documentary film, and feminist and Latin American politics.

The program showcases Portillo's work, including SENORITA EXTRAVIADA and the Academy Award®-nominated LAS MADRES: THE MOTHERS OFPLAZA DE MAYO, that range from the Latin American immigrant experience to examinations of tradition, history and memory, and the valiant struggles fought by many Latin American women today.
