Roma Redux

Episode 111


It's finally here! In this episode los chicos de Latinos Who Lunch break down Alfonso Cuaron's Roma. Before getting down to business, Babelito gives you his recipe for pozole and FavyFav continues to make us salivate over all his Guate foods. Within the first few minutes of the film, both Favy and Babelito felt uneasy with the way Cleo (Yalitzia Aparicio's character) was portrayed and the power dynamics between a privileged white director and the memories of his indigenous maid. They address the recent success of three Mexican film directors in Hollywood and the politics of representation that have placed Roma on a pedestal. Stay tuned till the end for some podcast recommendations and a listener letter. As always send your questions to and we might read them on a future episode. #podsincolor #supportbrownpodcasts #supportlatinxpodcasts #lwlpod
