Los Angeles-based filmmaker MylÃ¨ne Moreno makes documentaries that reflect her diverse cultural interests. Her latest project is Recalling Orange County, a personal look at the orchestrated backlash against an immigrant-rights leader that reveals fierce conflicts in Californiaâ€™s Orange County over what it means to be American.
MylÃ¨neâ€™s previous film, True-Hearted Vixens, features female athletes pursuing dreams of professional athletic greatness in a startup tackle football league. Produced in association with the Independent Television Service, Vixens aired during the 2001 season of P.O.V.
Earlier, she worked in Austin on several PBS documentaries, producing the first episode of the landmark series Â¡CHICANO! History of the Mexican American Civil Rights Movement. She also produced a tongue-in-cheek documentary “search” for the brilliant and reclusive novelist, Cormac McCarthy, titled Cormacâ€™s Trash, and directed Maribel, a short film about an El Paso teenager’s experience of motherhood, marriage, and a second pregnancy.
MylÃ¨ne is a graduate of Stanford Universityâ€™s documentary film program.
