It's a newsletter like day

1. Saw "The Martian" today.  Forget that I am slightly smitten by Matt Damon.  Forget that it is in 3D.  Forget that family and friends work at JPL.  I would go see the movie again.  Wait, change would to will.

2. Last month I was on a panel at the Pasadena Playhouse and this coming Saturday I will be blogtalkradio show - Latino Role Models Success  Saturday, October 3rd at 1:00 p.m.  I've done panels before, I've been interviewed before, but I've never done a live call in talk radio show.

3. The documentary "Justice for My Sister" will be airing on KCET tonight at 9 p.m.  If you can't catch it on Friday, it will be airing again during the month of October.

It won First Place for documentaries at the 2013 LALIFF.  It is about one "Guatemalan woman's determination to hold her sister's killer accountable results in a three-year battle that uncovers impunity."


  1. Forget Latino role models, you're a role model. Period.

    I will see "Martian." Lots of money in that movie and the idea is fascinating.

    "Justice for My Sister" looks compelling, frustrating, heartbreaking, all kinds of things. There's some hope at the end of that trailer.

  2. We model for each other, don't we? I really enjoyed "The Martian". Not having read the book I didn't know that it would be so funny. Lots of good has come from "Justice for My Sister". The doc has been used in Latin American countries as a means of change. Have to respect all the work that Kimberly has done.

  3. I loved "The Martian," especially all the science. We want more of that in films!
