Synopsis

Beyond the racism she experienced as a Latina actor, AMERICAN MASTERS "Rita Moreno: Just a Girl Who Decided to Go For It" will explore the lesser-known struggles Moreno faced on her path to stardom, including pernicious Hollywood sexism and sexual abuse, a toxic relationship with Marlon Brando, and an attempted suicide a year before she won her Oscar.

The documentary will demonstrate Moreno's talent and resilience as she broke barriers and paved the way for new generations of artists by refusing to be pigeonholed and fighting for Latinx representation in a variety of genres
