Rebel is the story of Loreta Velazquez, a Confederate soldier turned Union spy. She was dismissed as a hoax for a hundred and fifty years, but new evidence shows Loreta, a Cuban immigrant from New Orleans, was one of an estimated 1000 secret women soldiers of the American Civil War.

María Aguí Carter is an Ecuadorean-American filmmaker who conducted research on the film ­_Rebel_ as a Rockefeller Fellow at the Stone Center for Latin American Studies at Tulane University in 2002-2003. The film was previewed on Tulane’s campus a few years ago. More on the film and its protagonist, Cuban-born, New Orleans-raised Loreta Velázquez here

The film will be screened on PBS stations at 9 PM.
