#MovementMondays STEPHANIE BEATRIZ / The Light of the Moon
Although Stephanie Beatriz (the Argentinian born actress) is best known for her comedic role in Brooklyn Nine-Nine, she can be seen starring in the independent dramatic feature film The Light of the Moon directed by Jessica M Thompson. The Hollywood Reporter stated that "Beatriz offers a powerful... unflinching, authentic performance" as she plays Bonnie, a successful architect, who was sexually assaulted in New York City and must deal with the struggles to regain intimacy and control in her life afterwards. Especially since sexual assault has been in a topic in the news constantly, Beatriz tells Bust: “This is a systemic problem that we’ve been dealing with for a long, long, long time. Arguably, we are very late to the party — this movie should have been made a long, long time ago. Unfortunately, again, it’s a systemic problem — women weren’t necessarily allowed to have that voice. Jessica wouldn’t have been able to make this film before; it’s been an old boys’ club for such a long time. It’s only recently that women have come into their own power and have decided that they’re going to try, come hell or high water, to tell their own stories, and to tell other people’s stories as well.” The film premiered at South by Southwest Film Festival in March 2017 where it won an Audience Award in the Narrative Feature Competition. For a limited time only, The Light of the Moon will open in Los Angeles at the Laemmle’s Monica Film Center this Thursday, November 16 @ 7PM. Go check it out and support Latinos in film. First weekend matters most and you can be a contributor to helping create a space for more Latino led projects!!!
#MovementMondays Kumail Nanjiani is a Pakistani-American stand-up comedian, actor, writer, and podcast host. Born and raised in a strict Muslim household in Pakistan, Nanjiani moved to the U.S. at the age of 18 to attend Grinnell College in Iowa, where he double majored in Computer Science and Philosophy. He stayed in the States to pursue his comedy career. Nanjiani is best known for starring on HBO’s Emmy Award-nominated series Silicon Valley, where he actually plays a computer programmer. He has also had roles on TNT’s Franklin & Bash, Adult Swim’s Newsreaders, and IFC’s Portlandia. His voice can be heard on Emmy Award-winning animated series Adventure Time and in the podcasts The Indoor Kids and The X-Files Files. When starting in comedy, Nanjiani was always confronted with racism and was hesitant of incorporating his background into his stand up but he told USA Today, “over time, "I was like, 'There's a big part of myself that I'm not talking about onstage.' It felt disingenuous," he says. "Like, if I want to be personal onstage, this is a part of me that I have to talk about. It doesn't mean I have to talk about it in a stereotypical way; it means that I can talk about it in an experiential way." This past summer, Nanjiani co-wrote/starred in The Big Sick, a romantic comedy loosely based on his real love story with his wife Emily V. Gordon who wrote alongside him. The story follows a modern interracial couple that has to deal with their cultural differences especially as Kumail struggles to tell his parents he is no longer religious. In January 2017, the film had its premiere at Sundance and went to theaters in July. The Big Sick has become one of the most critically acclaimed films and highest grossing independent films of 2017.

Lisa Vidal is an American actress with Puerto Rican descent. Vidal has been seen in shows from New York Undercover, High Incident, The Division, to CSI: Miami, Law & Order and Rosewood. Since 2013, Vidal has starred alongside Gabrielle Union in the BET drama Being Mary Jane that recently finished its fourth season. In 2014, Vidal talked Latina Magazine about the future of Latinos on TV: “I think the future of television for Latinos is like we’re finally waking up, I feel like we’ve been asleep for a long ass time. And I have a lot of respect for the African American community, how they fight for each other. They go out there they watch their movies they watch their shows. They support. They make it a point to say something if they don’t see a person of color on something and they’re not being represented. They have producers and writers out there writing for other African American actors, making sure they put them on shows. Latinos have to do the same thing. We have to support one another; we have to make it a point to seek each other out and to highlight each other.” Vidal has been a great advocate and role model for Latinas beyond her acting roles. As a survivor of breast cancer in 2016, Vidal has opened up about her treatment. On an episode of The Real, Vidal said: "I just really want young women—Latina women, especially women of color—to understand how important it is to get early detection. So many women are afraid, and it's like the fear that holds you back could be life-threatening, and it's just not worth it to do that."

Enrique Martín Morales (most commonly known as Ricky Martin) is a Puerto Rican singer, actor, and author.  At 9-years-old, Martin began appearing in Puerto Rican television commercials. At age 12, he became a member of the all-boy pop group Menudo. In early 1999, after releasing several albums in Spanish, Martin performed "La copa de la vida" (The Cup of Life) at the 41st Annual Grammy Awards show, which became a catalyst in bringing Martin to the forefront of the U.S. music scene. Following its success, Martin released "Livin' la Vida Loca", which helped him attain enormous success worldwide; it is generally seen as the song that began the Latin pop explosion of 1999 and made the transition easier for other Spanish-speaking artists to move into the English-speaking market. Since then, Martin has continued his success by releasing a handful of Spanish & English albums, he penned an autobiography in 2010 that made New York Times bestseller, appeared as a coach on The Voice Australia & The Voice Mexico, and wrote a children’s book titled Santiago the Dreamer in Land Among the Stars.  Martin is also the founder of Fundación Ricky Martin (Ricky Martin Foundation), a non-profit organization with the mission to advocate for the wellbeing of children around the world. Recently, Martin traveled to his home country Puerto Rico where he distributed basic necessities to those affected by Hurricane Maria. Martin went on the Ellen show twice to ask people to help, he exclaimed: “We were destroyed by a hurricane and it’s been very difficult,” Martin said on the show. “Right now, there is no water, there is no electricity, there is no food. There is no medicine. There is no diesel for the generators that will make the hospital work. People are dying. So, as a Puerto Rican, as the American that I am, I’m here  to ask for your help.” Martin added in his second appearance on Ellen: "The governor of Puerto Rico said yesterday it will cost us $90 billion to bring Puerto Rico back to where it was," and every dollar that goes to his YouCaring page "will make a difference" in helping the island recover. Donations have grown to over 2.8 million. 🇵🇷🙌🏽🙏🏼
