The more I think about the series Latino in America, the more comments I read here and on other sites, and the more I seek out real lives of Latinos and Latin Americans. Who needs cable when I found another documentary in the PBS Voces series, Soy Andina.
What really resonated with me about this film was how the young Peruana went to Peru and struggled with being confronted about her identity. Because she was born in the United States, she was viewed as gringa not as the Peruana she felt she was. This was done through exploring the folkloric dances of the “home of her heart”.
