Visiones: “Remembering Selena”
Questions to Guide Discussion (feel free to branch out from these!)
1. How did Selena transcend her role as a Tejana singer to become a cross-cultural Latina icon?
2. In what ways are Jennifer Lopez and Selena similar? Was it a good decision to cast Jennifer as Selena? How would the movie have been different if a Mexican actress played Selena? Does it matter that Jennifer is not Mexican, as long as she plays the role well?
