Agueda Martinez: Our People, Our Country

Dir. Esperanza Vasquez
1977, 18min

 

An Oscar-nominated portrait of the celebrated New Mexico artist and weaver Agueda Martinez.

 
Raíces de sangre (Roots of Blood)

Dir. Jesús Salvador Treviño
1978, 94min, Digital

 

Director Jesús Salvador Treviño had long been active in the Chicano civil rights movement when he made this revolutionary cri de coeur. Set along the Texas-Mexico divide, it's a hard-hitting, neorealist dramatization of the struggles faced by garment factory workers on both sides of the border as they fight to form an international union—a powerful portrayal of Mexican-Chicano solidarity.
