The Havre de Grace Arts Collective presents: Chulas Fronteras
April 15, 2022 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm
CHULAS FRONTERAS – A Film by Les Blank
“Chulas Fronteras” is a documentary about the music of the Mexican community on both sides of the Texas-Mexico border, particularly of migrant farmers. It includes material about the roots of the music, but devotes principal attention to the music as a form of social protest against oppression and racism.
A complex, insightful look at the Chicano experience as mirrored in the lives and music of the most acclaimed Norteño musicians of the Texas-Mexican border, including Los Alegres de Teran, Flaco Jimenez, and Lydia Mendoza. Chulas Fronteras was selected by The Library of Congress to be added to the National Film Registry list, of the 400 motion pictures to be preserved in perpetuity.
