From small bars on Alameda to headlining Fiesta de las Flores to filling the El Paso County Coliseum, Tejano music icon Selena performed multiple times in El Paso. Her last El Paso show was August 6, 1994, and less than a year later her life was tragically cut short. The film Selena, which includes footage from her El Paso performances, vibrantly pays tribute to her short life and extraordinary talent while catapulting Jennifer Lopez to acting stardom for her acclaimed performance as the singer. It’s also a solid showcase for PCFF 2023 guest Edward James Olmos as her driven, understanding father. Told with authenticity and emotional depth, this story about family, music, cultural impact and breaking barriers that remains powerful today ensuring that the legacy of Selena Quintanilla-Pérez lives on. — Keri Moe
