For Latinos in the film industry, Mexican directors’ Oscar success is a ‘mixed bag’

“I think it’s awesome,” said Natalie Meza, a Mexican-American senior in Cal State Northridge’s Film Production program and a Hollywood Foreign Press Association fellow. “It’s inspiring and it’s really good to have representation, to see that it’s not just one group. When people think of directors, a lot of them think of white males, so it’s really amazing to see people from different cultures representing the field. It’s just showing the younger generation of filmmakers like me that there’s not only one group that can be represented. It’s exciting to see the change in Hollywood that is happening.”
