Mi gente, in only 10 days the race begins! Disney is launching the movie, McFarland USA. An American story about a group of Latino students who win the race.
Inspired by the 1987 true story, “McFarland, USA” follows novice runners from McFarland, an economically challenged town in California, as they give their all to build a cross-country team under the direction of Coach Jim White (Kevin Costner), a newcomer to their predominantly Latino high school, with whom they ultimately bond to build not only a championship cross-country.
The LATISM familia got to watch the McFarland USA Premier during LATISM’14. It was the best way to end the conference con broche de oro. Everyone left inspired and ready to win their own race con muchas ganas. I have a great opportunity for those of you who would like to watch the Premier on Thursday in the following cities:
Los Angeles, Miami, Chicago, Houston, Dallas, San Antonio, Phoenix, San Jose and San Diego.
We’re also doing the Twitter Party this Thursday on education and the MacFarland USA movie. So if you watched it back in November come and join us. At the same time, if Education is your thing, we’ll be waiting for you like always con los brazos abiertos in #LATISM your cyber casita. See you this Thursday at 9:00 PM (EST).
