Edward James Olmos is an Oscar-nominated actor, producer and director. Rosa and Cat dive into Olmos' debut feature role as El Pachuco in ZOOT SUIT (1981), his directorial debut with AMERICAN ME (1992), his Oscar-nominated performance as Jaime Escalante in STAND AND DELIVER (1988) and Abraham Quintanilla in SELENA (1997). 

Through these films Rosa and Cat talk about their own personal connection to Olmos' work, discuss the themes of identity, Latinx representation and the importance of watching these movies.
