    "She went on to recount how after Sono offered her a part in one of his films, he attempted to force her to have sex with him. When she refused, the director called another woman who had previously worked with him and they proceeded to engage in sexual acts in front of her. While she was in shock, an assistant director who was present led her outside. Assuming he was trying to help her, she followed…

    As a Mexican-American who grew up with a father involved as a local DJ and equipment deal, I found this movie to be VERY personal.

    While my family did not come from Monterrey, cumbia sonideras and rebajadas are still more or less the soundtrack of my adolescent youth and early teens as we struggled to day-to-day in the marketplaces and cities across California whilst getting adjusted in the country.

This place was the loudest venue on the local strip by far, receiving frequent noise complaints from the neighboring houses and businesses. They never reduced their volume levels, overcompensating the size of the venue with the attraction the owners felt like they were bringing.

    For over 2 years of my time there, I had worked irresponsibly by choosing not to wear earplugs. The flawed logic for…
