In conversation with Mandalit del Barco, correspondent, national desk, NPR West

From acting in award-winning films such as Before Night Falls, Frida, and Milk, to directing a forthcoming feature on Cesar Chavez, Luna's passion for storytelling as an agent for social change is illuminated in his film work. As an activist, he speaks out against the bi-national arms trade and he is founder of Ambulante, a mobile documentary project bringing cinema to remote places in the Americas. Inspired by art as reflections, Luna talks about these projects and life on both sides of the border.

A celebrated literary series of conversations, readings, and performances at the downtown Los Angeles Central Library, ALOUD brings together today’s brightest cultural, scientific, and political luminaries with the curious minds of Los Angeles.

By presenting a range of authors, scientists, thinkers, and artists, the series engages Angelenos in critical civic discourse and inspires life-long learning. Events feature local as well as national and international experts in their field paired with a moderator to facilitate a dynamic discussion. Most programs are followed by a Q&A and book signing with the audience.

Curated by Louise Steinman, author and director of Cultural Programs for the Library Foundation of Los Angeles, ALOUD showcases a new line-up each season informed by current events and culturally relevant and intellectually engaging topics.

ALOUD is funded by the Library Foundation of Los Angeles.
