Two acclaimed films on Mexican-American Border Music by Les Blank & Chris Strachwitz.

1.Chulas Fronteras

"...Chulas Fronteras is absolutely the best Chicano documentary film that I have seen to-date...It is our history, rescued without excuses and without romanticism but with vitality" - Prf. Juan Rodriguez - University of California, San Diego
"A Tex-Mex masterpiece" - The Village Voice
Selected for the National Film Registry by the Library of Congress for its very special historical, cultural and artistic contributions.

2. Del Mero Corazón

"Del Mero Corazón' is Blank's truest, most expressive film to date...there is history... there are expressions of pride in La Raza, demonstrated by street murals and by "Las Nubes," an uplifting anthem to the Latin heritage, sung by Little Joe & La Familia." - Joe Nick Patoski - Texas Monthly
