Description

Film and television have a history of not effectively representing marginalized communities, or not representing them at all. In terms of representing the Chicanx community, there are few television shows and films that depict the intersectional Chicanx community. The focus of this research are two shows that intend to be represent Chicanx culture: Netflix's On My Block (2018), and Hulu's East Los High (2013). Both shows are supposed to be focused on representing Chicanx youth culture in high school. Both shows revolve around different Chicanx issues, but my research question is to find out who these shows are meant for and their potential impact.
