It’s the Oscars today!
We would like to thank the filmmakers who documented the story of Alex Nieto, our cause, and our movement FOR TWO YEARS!
Unfortunately, none of our community filmmakers were nominated at #OscarsSoWhite. 😦
But don’t worry! The Justice & Love for Alex Nieto Coalition also has a member named Oscar, aka AssKar Zalinass! To honor our community filmmakers, and in honor of one of our most solid gold members, we have put together a list of nominees for our very own ASSKARS...!
Our nominees for an ASSKAR are…
Uncle Ray Balberan for documenting the Justice4AlexNieto movement (2014-ongoing)
Peter Menchini for The Death of Alex Nieto (2014)
Rafael Flores for Amor por Alex (2014)
Ivonne Iriondo and Adriana Camarena for The Twilight of Alex Nieto (2014)
Ben Bac Sierra with filmmaker Peter Menchini for Lowrider Lawyers: Putting A City on Trial
And THE ASSKAR GOES TO…
ALL OF YOU!
YOU ALL WIN!
WE ALL WIN!
We love our Oscar, aka Asskar Zalinass! Even though he might be chasing down Coalition member Adriana Camarena right now. We really really love him!
