This is part memoir, part historical reflection on the creation of “Punto de Vista: Latina,” a transnational distribution and local exhibition project of films by and about Latinas during the reorganization of Women Make Movies in the early 1980s. The relationship of the project to the development of feminist film studies, the production conditions for women's filmmaking in Latin America, the contemporary climate for distribution and exhibition in New York City (along with public funding structures), and the cultivation of new Latina/Latino audiences in New York are briefly considered, and community partnerships and collaborations inside the project are highlighted.
