Hi Gail,

Although it's not about stereotypes, you might be interested in Nuyorican
Dream, a documentary that was executive produced by John Leguizamo. It's
available from Big Mouth Productions, http://www.bigmouthproductions.com
You might also want to try the Racial Justice -> Latino category on
MediaRights.org http://www.mediarights.org/search/browse.php?cat_id=00055

Best,
Jenny
