Independent Lens

Las Marthas

Series Website »
Episode Guide »
The annual debutante ball in Laredo, Texas is unlike any other in the country -- its 94 percent Latino debutantes and their attendants all dress as Martha Washington or other patriotic figures from America's colonial period.



Rachel Senechal leads a discussion of the ideas surrounding the film, Las Marthas, which documents the annual cross-border debutante ball of the Martha Washington Society in Laredo Texas, and Nuevo Laredo, Mexico. The general feeling of those present is that we have nothing like that in Vermont. This program was recorded January 15, 2014 in Montpelier, Vermont.
