In time for Hispanic Heritage month, HBO’s documentary The Latino List offers an illuminating glimpse into the richness and diversity of the Latino life in the United States. Interviewed by Latino USA’s own Maria Hinojosa, along with Sandra Guzman, it features highly personal video portraits of accomplished and influential Latinos from the worlds of culture, politics, business, and sports – including Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor, Eva Longoria, Pitbull, and more.
This week on Latino USA, Maria takes us behind the scenes of The Latino List with executive producers Catherine Pino and Ingrid Duran to talk about the inspiration of this ground-breaking documentary.
HBO’s Latino List is directed by Timothy Greenfield-Sanders, the acclaimed photographer and director of the three editions of HBO’s Black List. The Latino List premiers on Sept. 28th at 9pm on HBO Latino and Sept. 29th at 8pm on HBO.
