To the Bone, a Short Film by Erin Li

In a mere eight minutes, To the Bone tells the coming-of-age story of a preteen girl, her brother and father, and the plight of migrant farmworkers. After watching this slice of life that shows the reality of bearing hours of picking in heat despite exhaustion and in less-than-human conditions, you would think this girl would be broken, but her spirit stays strong…and rebellious.  In a turn of events, and in hopes of helping her brother, she challenges the status quo. What happens next will leave you with your jaw hanging.

Andrew Longoria of Corpus Christi, TX created a petition through change.org to get the queen her own star. So far it’s collected 2,345 signatures of the 2,500 goal. And remember what happened last time a Selena petition was created? MAC Cosmetics agreed to create a collection dedicated to the Tex-Mex singer.

Hold up ✋. Only one minor detail…

According to the Hollywood Walk of Fame site, the committee does not accept petitions for a nomination. Womp, womp. But we’re sure Selena’s fans and family will nominate her following the correct process.
