America Ferrera is 'Welling Up With Pride' at 'Genti-Fied' Premiere

America Ferrera was beaming with pride at the premiere of her bilingual web series Gente-Fied!

The 32-year-old actress stepped out for Short Form Episodic Showcase held during the 2017 Sundance Film Festival at Egyptian Theatre on Monday (Janaury 23) in Park City, Utah.

America served as both a cast member and executive producer for the series, and she was joined by other cast and crew members as they celebrated the Latino-created show.

Genti-Fied focuses on seven people as they they tackle gentrification in Los Angeles’ Boyle Heights.

“Talent is universal, opportunity is not,” America wrote on Instagram along with the photo below. “Welling up with pride that the beautiful, funny, complicated @gentefied written and directed by Latinos, created so much opportunity to display the incredible talent that exists in our community! #latinocast #opportunity #talent #sundance #latinx.”
