In the past few weeks I’ve seen several movies made by hyphenates. Not exactly hyphenates such as myself (though one also did have a hyphenated last name!), hyphenates who are redefining the process of filmmaking and distribution.
I didn’t go to Pixar’s Cars 3 expecting to see a story involving the challenges of breaking through the glass ceiling, dealing with race-ism (yes, car-related puns are hard to avoid with this movie) and the challenges of socio-economic divides. Yet these were all things the film very tactfully covered thanks to the introduction of Cruz Ramirez, voiced by comedian Cristela Alonzo, whose real life story helped inspire the character.
I always resented Wonder Woman growing up. Consider me a convert.
