Texas Mexican food is not from across the border. New Latinx-produced documentary showcases indigenous Mexican American women cooking Native food.

What you eat tells who you are”

— Adán Medrano

HOUSTON, TEXAS , USA, January 20, 2020 / — "Texas Mexican Food Stories" is a 75-minute documentary feature film that was shot totally in Texas and is in the final editing stage. "It's not a cooking show," says Adán Medrano, executive producer and author of two books about the history and the recipes of indigenous Texas Mexican cooking. "It's a road movie of discovery," Medrano continues, saying that the major voices in the film are of Mexican American women home cooks and restaurateurs. He says that they've been the leaders in developing and sustaining culinary traditions.

The producer of the documentary feature is Virginia Díaz, a Houston-based filmmaker who is originally from San Antonio and who grew up with this food. With location manager credits in feature films like "Selena" and "Rushmore," Díaz brings a strong vision to the production. She explains that the role of women has been erased from textbooks, newspapers, magazines and media in general. However, history tells us that "comida casera," home cooking of Mexican American women, holds the culinary tradition that begins 15,000 years ago when indigenous people first stepped on Texas soil, she says.

Although the film is under wraps during this final editing phase, Medrano will screen a five-minute sneak preview at the Texas Historical Commission's annual conference in Austin on January 29. Medrano is the opening night keynote speaker at the conference. "Our story is a universal story," says Medrano, explaining that it's all about the idea that "what you eat tells who you are."

The director of the film is Anibal Capoano from Uruguay whose most recent documentary, "Caballitos De Lata/Tin Horses," premiered in Houston four years ago. The production team is a Texas-Latin America collaboration. Capoano says that the Texas Mexican food story is one that resonates with indigenous communities across the Latin American continent. The director of photography is award-winning cinematographer, Gabriel Bendahan, also from Uruguay.

The production team shot 22 hours of footage in Texas cities including Houston, San Antonio, Corpus Christi, Harlingen, McAllen and aboard a small boat on the waters of the Rio Grande.

Díaz says that the film engages cooks, scholars, artists and activists as each tells how food shapes who they are. Foregrounding the leadership of Mexican American women, the scenes of cooking, baking, singing, feasting and barbecuing, all show that food is key in the formation of identity and the strengthening of community.

The film has received production funds from The Idea Fund, a program of The Andy Warhol Foundation for Visual Arts, and from the National Association of Latino Arts and Cultures (NALAC).

A film "Go Fund Me" campaign has been created to bring in wide grassroots support for the final edit and for distribution directly to universities, colleges and community centers.

She comes back to the states to reclaim her Jasmin persona after trying to escape it for the past 2 decades.

About Jasmin St. Claire:

St. Claire entered the adult industry on a dare. Invited on the Jerry Springer Show for a scripted role as antagonistic stripper, St. Claire invented her larger-than- life "Jasmin St. Claire" persona. St. Claire's flare for theater and controversy marked her ascent in the adult film world. She polarized the industry by calling porn films "by and large, disgusting and brainless." But she quickly dethroned Jenna Jameson as America's top-selling porn star, and became the first Latina to surpass traditional blond porn star archetypes when her films achieved number one sales position in 1998. She was inducted in AVN's "Hall of Fame”. One of the greatest porn stars of all time. St. Claire was among the first adult performers to be merchandised as an action figure and to star in an adult comic book series.

At the height of her porn stardom, St. Claire was the subject of critical essays by David Foster Wallace and Evan Wright. She also served as inspiration for Chuck Palahniuk's novel Snuff, in which she appears as a character. For all the controversy she engendered, St. Claire only spent three years in the adult business and made just over two dozen films. In 1999, she retired. She never made an adult film again, though compilations of old footage re-released under new titles continued to be sold through the 2000s. St. Claire pushed herself to new extremes by becoming a pro-wrestler. In 1998 the Dudley Boyz invited her to appear in the ECW's Living Dangerously pay-per-view event. St. Claire subsequently trained under original G.L.O.W wrestler Sue Sexton and Mando Guerrero, then worked with wrestling legend Jimmy Lawler in the Memphis Championship and in the XWF and NWA- TNA. St. Claire often played the role of "manager," who would enter the ring and fight alongside wrestlers. In real life, St. Claire created the upstart federation 3PW becoming the first female owner ever to operate and promote a wrestling league, five years before Stephanie McMahon took the reigns of the WWE. St. Claire closed the doors to 3PW in 2005. St. Claire became a heavy-metal journalist and on-air personality with the launch of the Metals Darkside. series in 2004, which she also produced. Her interest in heavy metal stretches back to the first Black Sabbath show she attended at Madison Square Garden when she was nine. In 1998 she became the first female to emcee March Metal Meltdown in New Jersey, helping to introduce Sepultura to a North American audience. Through the mid-2000s St. Claire served as a veejay for The Metal Scene TV Show, AOL Noisecreep, Inferno TV and Stay Heavy TV, while writing articles as a contributor to Yahoo News and Guitar Player. She also served as a spokes model for B.C. Rich Guitars, Coffin Case, Krank Amplifiers and licensed her likeness to Guitar Hero for a controller made by Peavey.

St. Claire returned to acting 2013 in a series of dramatic roles, portraying an FBI agent in Army of the Damned and hardened street criminal in Grand Auto Theft. Most recently she appeared on popular HBO series, The Deuce.

L. Ron Hubbard Presents Writers & Illustrators of the Future welcomes Dan dos Santos as Contest judge

Every artist learns from artists that came before them, growing, and surpassing the previous generation in both skill and timeliness.”

— Dan dos Santos

LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES, January 14, 2020 / — Dan dos Santos is one of the most recognized artists in the field who helped shape the fantasy market with his colorful oil paintings of strong women. His award-winning art has graced numerous #1 New York Times bestselling books and can be seen on covers across the globe.

From book illustrations for Patrick Rothfuss to Brandon Sanderson, Diana Rowland to Mike Resnick, one would think Dan was already a part of the Writers & Illustrators of the Future. He has done multiple covers and illustrations for both judges and winners of the Contest. But aside from his amazing talent, it is his continuous effort to pass down skills to the next generation of artists that brought him on board with the Contest. As he himself stated, "Every artist learns from artists that came before them, growing, and surpassing the previous generation in both skill and timeliness."

Dan dos Santos was originally met at Dragon Con in Atlanta. It was much like meeting Larry Elmore, Ciruelo, Rob Prior, or even Frank Frazetta, who are all the most humble down-to-earth people you ever met. And while every one of them stated that the others are so legendary and all seem to look up to each other, one defining quality they had in common was ensuring there will be artists for generations to come by passing along their valuable knowledge. This aligns with L. Ron Hubbard's vision in starting the Contests for both writers and illustrators back in the 1980s.

With the Illustrators of the Future Contest, new and aspiring artists are given a level playing field where their creative efforts can be viewed by the very best. Winners also partake in a week-long workshop with Contest judges, free of charge, where they learn the craft and business of illustration, and how to make a living in the industry. "The Illustrators of the Future is an amazing compass for what the art industry holds in store for all of us," stated Dan.

The Writers of the Future Writing Contest ( was created by L. Ron Hubbard to provide a means for aspiring writers to get that much-needed break with the first volume releasing in 1985. Due to the success of the Writing Contest, the companion Illustrators of the Future Contest was created.

The Writers and Illustrators of the Future Award is the genre’s most prestigious award of its kind and has now become the largest, most successful, and demonstrably most influential vehicle for budding creative talent in the world of contemporary fiction. Since inception, the Writers and Illustrators of the Future Contests have produced 35 anthology volumes and awarded nearly $1 Million cumulatively in cash prizes and royalties.
