"La Morena" is now on Vimeo demand rent or buy today!
La Morena focuses on Lucinda Yrene, an Arizona artist who is claiming her roots and activism through her art. Her murals focus on the power of community, family and healing. You can see her pain, her love and inspiration through the guidance of her ancestors who energize her art.
Poder in Action is proud to partner with Mango Skies and Lucinda Hinojos for the celebration of their short film, La Morena. We invest in, train, equip, and support people of color, youth, queer folks and mixed status communities in order to disrupt and dismantle systems of oppression and determine a new and liberated future. Everyday, we are fighting family separation, police violence, and other forms of systemic abuse with a fierce love of ourselves and our people.
Artistic creation plays such a meaningful role in every struggle to change the world. Artists and visionaries like Lucinda remind us how to dream and reimagine our world, the way we live, and the ways in which we hold one another. This film brings renewed energy to our fight and we hope it will inspire others to demand dignity, respect and the right to determine their own futures.
Proceeds will go to Mango Skies and Poder in Action and will continue to help keep families together.
