Benjamin Bratt narrates LATINO AMERICANS, a landmark three-part, six-hour documentary series beginning September 17 at 7:00 p.m. on KTTZ-TV. It is the first major documentary series for television to chronicle the rich and varied history and experiences of Latinos, who have helped shape the United States over the last 500-plus years and have become, with more than 50 million people, the largest minority group in the U.S.
The series is broken into the following six chronological segments that cover the 1500s to the present day:
We all know the Mario Brothers. But have you ever stepped back and tried looking at those games from a fresh perspective? They're bananas! There are armored turtles who stand on their hind legs and steal princesses! There are bullets with FACES! We make a case for Mario's inclusion into a canon of art wider than "Video Game": we think Mario is a piece of surrealist art.
