 Louis E. Perego Moreno, or "Tio Louie," a well known producer & director, will be showing and having a discussion about the documentary he produced and directed entitled "Latina Confessions."

This film explores what it means to be Latina in the United States, as well as the Madonna/Whore Complex and its impact on the development of Latina sexuality.

About Tio Louie-
"Louis is an Interactive Content Producer. For 25 years, Louis has been the President of SKYLINE FEATURES, an English and Spanish language multimedia production and educational company focusing on trans-cultural, multicultural and youth edutainment projects. Louis' extensive experience as a youth counselor and his own cultural/sexual
identity struggles as a Bronx-born Latino gay man of mixed Cuban-Argentine origin give a unique perspective to a documentary film on Latinas in the U.S.A. This combination of backgrounds fosters a safe, comfortable environment evident in the manner in which women express their most intimate feelings, risking their reputations while challenging society’s expectations. What results is a unique picture of take-charge individuals who forever challenge simplistic, long-standing views of what it means to be Latina in the United States."

The film will be followed by a 60-90-minute discussion of the movie.
