This a book club style event, we will have a group discussion about the last movie (Salt of the earth) before viewing the a new piece.
Each film will begin with a brief introduction from our chosen guest speaker, then folks will receive a link to watch the movie.
The fourth movie in this series is by far the most requested, arguably most well known Chicano film.
***THIS MOVIE IS RATED R***
“Based on the true life experiences of poet Jimmy Santiago Baca, the film focuses on step-brothers Paco and Cruz, and their bi-racial cousin Miklo.
It opens in 1972, as the three are members of an East L.A. gang known as the “Vatos Locos”, and the story focuses on how a violent crime and the influence of narcotics alter their lives.”
