This PBS Independent Lens documentary by filmmaker Cristina Ibarra follows the lives of young women as they debut at the Society of Martha Washington Colonial Ball in the border town of Laredo, TX. The film explores biculturalism, tradition, and an enduring rite of passage in this Mexican American community. The screening is held in conjunction with Laura Wilson’s THAT DAY photography exhibition (Wilson spent time documenting the Debutante Cotillion in the early 1990s).
