We will be joined by Dr. Virginia Sanchez-Korrol, Dr. Frances Negrón-Muntaner, and Dr. Brian Herrera, with Dr. Jillian Baez as moderator. This panel will provide a critical discussion of the West Side Story remake. Panelists will discuss representations in the original film and offer insights into how the remake both reproduces and remedies the limitations and silences of the original.
