Los Angeles - based filmmaker Mylene Moreno makes documentaries that reflect her diverse cultural interests. She is currently following Mexican futbol Fanaticos in Los Angeles during the second season of Chivas USA. Her last project is Recalling Orange County, a personal look at the orchestrated backlash against an immigrant rights leader that reveals fierce conflicts in California's Orange County over what it means to be American. It will air during the inaugural season of the Latino Public Broadcasting series VOCES, in October 2006.
