Filmed partly in San Antonio and released two years after the Queen of Tejano’s untimely death, Gregory Nava’s 1997 biopic Selena spread the native Texan’s inspiring story and timeless songs to a global audience while her chart-topping crossover album Dreaming of You was still in heavy rotation. Likened by Variety to both “a contemporary fairy tale with an unhappy ending” and a “sentimental, rose-colored portrait,” the film may not be perfect but still stands the test of time as a major peg in the Selena timeline. State Representative Diana Arévelo welcomes Slab Cinema for an outdoor screening of the modern classic at Woodlawn Lake Park.
