Maria Hinojosa is joined by critically-acclaimed screenwriter Jose Rivera, whose 2004 film The Motorcycle Diaries earned an Oscar nomination for “Best Adapted Screenplay,” making him the first-ever Puerto Rican nominee in the category.

Maria Hinojosa on her interview with Jose Rivera:

"You think because someone is an award-winning screenwriter that they are somehow holier than thou....But that was SO not the case with Jose Rivera. He struck me as a real artist who is moved not by fame but by the nature of the writing. Besides Motorcyle Diaries his other big movie is Trade. I found both of them to be so powerful. And I especially appreciated Rivera's humility. I want that to inspire the next generation of Latino screenwriters in Hollywood. Jose is a gem and you get to see that side of him in our extensive and deep felt interview."
