At a time when everyone is cooped up at home and travel planning has stalled for a majority of US Americans, what better time to explore America (via couch) than with a travel show. ‘Americanos’ is a new five-part Latinx travel series taking viewers into powerful Latinx subcultures in cities across the nation and interviews the proud Latinx who enrich those vibrant Latino neighborhoods.
Who is behind the series ‘Americanos’ made by Latinx for Latinx? GoUSA TV and LA REYNA in collaboration with Vices Virtue and award-winning Latinx director Robert Rodriguez (“Sin City,” “From Dusk till Dawn,” and “El Mariachi”) and his El Rey Network.
Through the power of storytelling, ‘Americanos’ introduces use to Latinx personalities or popular voices in each vibrant community. We are taken to authentic restaurants, bakeries and city streets that speak of the growing Latinx influence and diaspora, past and present.
Part three of the five-part series takes us to Queens, New York where Afro-Latina journalist, founder of Aint I Latina?, Janel Martinez gives us her take on Queens, the Afro-Latina experience and sits with a friend, Diva Green, also Afro-Latina, who drops ‘The Afro-Latinx Guide to NYC‘.
