USU Documents Lives of Valley's Hispanic Community in New Film
Herald Journal Tuesday, Oct. 31, 2017
A documentary sharing the experiences and realities of Cache Valley’s Hispanic community will be screened this week at Utah State University as part of the school’s Day of the Dead festivities. The film, “Logan iSomos tus Vecinos!” (Logan, We Are Your Neighbors!), is scheduled for a screening at 6:30 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 2, in the Taggart Student Center auditorium on campus. ... “Logan iSomos tus Vecinos!” is the product of a USU club called the Latinx Creative Society, which set out to capture the lives of Hispanics in Cache County, according to the film’s director, Crescencio López González, USU assistant professor of Spanish. ... “The film will definitely imprint the idea of a community — that is the main goal of the film,” he said. “That everyone comes out of the movie saying, ‘Yes, this is a community, it’s growing and we’re proud of it.’”... González said the documentary to be screened Thursday is “just the beginning” of the Latinx Creative Society’s work documenting Cache Valley’s Hispanic population.
