Beyond the Screams

Martin Sorrondeguy directed this lively and thoughtful presentation of the Latino punk scene as a political movement. Dating back to the late 70s, Latino punk was reenergized in the early 90s (partly in response to anti-immigration bigotry) and continues to thrive in Chicago and Los Angeles especially. Jose Palafox of Bread and Circuits argues eloquently that “art and culture have to be tied into larger political action,” and Revolucion X obliges with ironic lyrics like “I'm making my future with the border patrol / Beating Mexicans is too much fun.” 27 min.
