If you are like me (and every other Latino) you are sick of seeing movies where the people that look like us are only maids, janitors, undocumented immigrants or drug dealers.

This year’s Tribeca Film Festival, running April 16 – 27, is filled with films that offer diverse portraits of Latinos (including a few requisite drug traffickers).
