Latino Film Fest Tackles Immigration Issues

It seems only appropriate that, in a year with Arizona's SB 1070, the proposed abolition of birthright citizenship, and the floundering of comprehensive immmoigration reform in Congress, that Edward James Olmos' Latino Film Festival in Los Angeles is tackling immigration issues this year.  The Los Angheles Latino International Film Festival. Closing out the film festival is immigration drama "," starring Jimmy Smits. "Backyard" is a fictional account of a series of murders of young women who were drawn as low-paid laborers to a Mexican town for the possibility of work at American-owned factories.
