    Time: 4:15 PM - 6:15 PM PDT
    Event Description:
    From revered filmmaker Les Blank and El Cerrito-based Arhoolie Records’ Chris Strachwitz (This Ain’t No Mouse Music!, MVFF 2014), Chulas Fronteras (Beloved Borders), is a zesty introduction to Norteña music and the culture that exists along the Texas-Mexican border. The music is a fusion of traditional Mexican harmonies, German dancehall rhythms, and a little something extra. From soulful, lively dance tunes to political work songs, música Norteña has evolved since the turn of the 20th century into a unique Mexican-American hybrid. Blank links the music’s spirit and vitality to the strong family bonds of Tejanos. The plight of migrant workers adds a sobering backbeat to this joyous film. Featuring: Flaco Jiménez, Lydia Mendoza, Los Alegres de Terán, Narciso Martínez, Santiago Jiménez, Rumel Fuentes, Don Santiago Jiménez, Los Pingüinos del Norte, Ramiro Cavazos. Director: Les Blank and Chris Strachwitz. Assistant Editor: Maureen Gosling.
