Greenlee Co-Sponsors Film about first-generation, American-born Latinos


Iowa State will host a screening of “Project Enye (ñ): A Voice for First–Generation Latinos between Two Worlds” and a discussion with the filmmaker as part of the university’s Latino Heritage Month activities.

The presentation will be at 7 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 13, in the Memorial Union Great Hall. First-time Latina filmmaker Denise Soler Cox (pictured here) will present opening comments, and a Q & A with the audience will follow the 37-minute documentary. The event is free and open to the public.

In the film, Soler Cox draws on her personal struggles growing up between two cultures to chronicle the shared experiences of 16 million first-generation American-born Latinos, or Enyes (ñs).

The presentation is co-sponsored by the Greenlee School of Journalism and Communication, the Latino Heritage Committee, Sigma Lambda Beta International Fraternity Inc. and the Committee on Lectures, which is funded by Student Government.
