Netflix Finally Released The ‘Gentefied’ Trailer And The Show Looks Like An Instant Hit

We have been waiting for a look at “Gentefied” since we first heard that the project was in the works. Now, after so much waiting, we finally know what the show we’ve been waiting for is going to look like. Here is the trailer for the upcoming and highly anticipated “Gentefied.”

The trailer for “Gentefied” is here and it looks like one of the most authentic representations of East LA life.

It all centers around a family-owned restaurant in Boyle Heights. Like most people in Boyle Heights, the restaurant is in jeopardy because of the rising scourge of gentrification. To fight back, a community unites to push back against the rising threat of gentrification.

A lot of people are excited but many are still concerned that Netflix will cancel the show like “One Day At A Time.”

Who can forget the day Netflix announced that they were cutting a very culturally relevant and beloved show? The growing outcry from fans around the world eventually led to “One Day At A Time” being saved by Pop TV. Thankfully there was one network that understood the importance of the show.

Legit, people are really concerned that Netflix will give us a little bit of representation only to take it away again.

It’s hard to trust people in this world, especially when they have proven they will take beloved things away. We still aren’t over the sudden and never-fully-explained cancelation of “One Day At A Time.” They literally left Lydia stranded in Cuba…

Yet, people are still here to support the show because representation matters and we need more of it.

Our community is often overlooked by Hollywood. In fact, studies about Latino representation in front of and behind the camera shows an overwhelming underrepresentation of our community. “Gentefied” is bringing a clearer look into our community and a fight to protect the community against rampant gentrification.

Check out “Gentefied” coming to a Netflix account near you Feb. 21.

Make sure you have your friends log in information up to date so you don’t miss this.

All Of The Documentaries Feminists Should Watch While In Quarantine

Netflix

Just because it might seem as if the world is on pause, it doesn’t mean that our efforts to learn more about it and better ourselves should be.

Documentaries alongside biographies can teach us so much about the world we live in and open our eyes to its complexities, even teaching us about the obstacles we did not know were right in front of us. As women of color, there are so many, and often times we use documentaries to learn about them, so we can better understand how to propel ourselves forward and continue to succeed. To make sure that you do too, we’re rounding up documentaries for you to learn, grow, and build hope from while in quarantine.

Check the documentaries we’re binging now that we’ve got the time below!

Becoming (2020)

Former First Lady Michelle Obama takes an intimate look at her life, relationships, and dreams in this documentary which sees her touring the country while promoting her book Becoming. The New York Times describes the film as showing “a familiar, albeit more carefree, former first lady.”

AKA Jane Roe (2020)

This documentary by Nick McSweeney highlights Norma McCorvey, the woman who made history as “Jane Roe” in the landmark 1973 Supreme Court case Roe vs. Wade. Beyond the shock value of the movie’s twist, which unearths the reasons why McCorvey ultimately turned her back on the movement that advocated for her right to choose, it tells a story about the ruthlessness of political agendas.

Abuelas: Grandmothers On A Mission (2013)
