Directed by Efraín Gutiérrez | 1976

With Efraín Gutiérrez, Jose Armando, David Moss

The very first Chicano feature ever made is an against-all-odds miracle of regional independent filmmaking and a vital record of Mexican-American life in 1970s America. Set in the barrio of San Antonio, Texas, it chronicles the experiences of a young Chicano (director Gutiérrez, who also produced and distributed the film) as he grapples with racism, poverty, and the effects of the Vietnam War on his community.
