Remembering Ed Fuentes

Episode 112


This week we are honoring a dear compadre que se nos fue. Ed Fuentes was a cultural journalist and one of the biggest Latinos Who Lunch supporters. Fuentes was a writer and an advocate for Latinx artists on the West Coast and his absence will be felt for a long long time… Rest in power amigo. Our friend and colleague Ed Fuentes talked to us about his career as an advocate for Chicanx arts. Through his blog, Paint this Desert, he was able to highlight the artistic diversity of our communities in Las Vegas and Los Angeles. Ed also discusses the perils of being the only Chicano MFA student in a department dominated by white male artists, and the importance that public murals have in the fight for resistance against oppression and gentrification. #podin #supportbrownpodcasts #supportlatinxpodcasts #lwlpod

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.
