Martha Washington Society Debutantes’ Final Rehearsal

In this excerpt from the Independent Lens documentary Las Marthas, it’s two days before this U.S.-Mexico border version of a Colonial ball, a tradition like no other, as participating debutantes practice entrances and bowing while wearing their cumbersome gowns. Rosario is nervous about all the details she has to remember as a newcomer to the tradition, while maintaining grace under pressure.

      Watching the Detropia segment on Independent Lens made me sad for the City I spent the first 17 years of my life growing up in. My only criticism is to the captions … too white / washed out and the type font too blurry to read without getting out of my chair and standing a foot from the television screen.
