Episode Description
Wednesday, Feb 19, 2014 - 6:00 PM    "Las Marthas" This film follows a Mexican American girl and one from Mexico, both of whom are carrying on the tradition of an annual debutante ball in Laredo, Texas, which was established in the aftermath of the U.S.-Mexico War. In a time of economic uncertainty and political tension over immigration, the celebration serves as a reminder of the post-war tensions following the influx of Anglo migrants into Texas during the state's infancy.
