ShowtimesOctober 11:5:00 pm, 7:00 pm
13th Latin American and Spanish Film Week
A Celebration of the Arts in the Hispanic World
A daring, self-reflexive documentary on the extraordinary Mexican/Chicano performance artist Guillermo Gómez-Peña’s 40-year career of radical artistic practice alongside his international troupe La Pocha Nostra. At a time when the mainstream media is filled with demonizing stories about the US-Mexico border, the film presents the philosophical frameworks of an artist with a sustained dedication to highly impactful, innovative artistic interventions on that border, and presents a unique portrait of his beloved troupe. Featuring exclusive footage from his personal archive, Gómez-Peña enacts his artistic interventions by reclaiming and “queering the border” as a laboratory for utopian ideas and artistic experimentation.
