Eva Longoria, who in the 2012 election cycle, emerged as one of the top Latino supporters of President Barack Obama is continuing her political work. This time she’s merging her film expertise with her interest in turning out the Latino vote. Longoria is teaming up with director Gianpaolo Pietri to more closely examine Latino voter participation.
The filmmakers are using Kickstarter to help fund the documentary to encourage community participation from all sides of the political spectrum. The Kickstarter deadline is Saturday, April 26 at 11:15 PM PDT.
Speaking to Politico, Longoria explained why she’s pursuing this project, “A lot of attention has been paid to the role of Latinos in electing President Obama, but that election is really only the very beginning of the influence that our community is going to have on American politics and in shaping the future of this country.”
