Chicanas: Literature, Theory, and Film

Professor Yvonne Yarbro-Bejarano, in her last quarter teaching at Stanford, will host three prominent Chicanas to discuss Literature, Theory, and Film.
Her third guest is Aurora Guerrero, who was born in San Francisco to Mexican immigrant parents. She earned an MFA in directing from the California Institute of the Arts. She is a co-founder of Womyn Image Makers. In 2005 Ms. Guerrero was selected as a Sundance Institute Ford Foundation film fellow, where she participated in the Native Indigenous Lab. In 2012, she made her feature film debut at Sundance. Mosquita y Mari tells the coming-of-age story of two teenage Chicanas, who form a relationship ignited by sexual attraction. Her next project, Los Valientes, features a young undocumented gay Latino.
