We have traveled to the Southwest twice in the past year to work on an
exciting project focusing on the Chican@ movement, the student martyrs
and Aztlan land struggles. In May, we were honored to document an
important and moving “Symbols of Resistance” gathering in Colorado, to
commemorate the 40th anniversary of “los seis de Boulder” (six young
Chican@ activists killed in two car bombings during the height of
student and community protest in 1974) and three other activist martyrs
from the same period. Three of us just returned from a second trip, this
time to southern Colorado and northern New Mexico, where we shot
in-depth interviews with leading activists for a documentary using this
new material about the origins of the Chican@ movement and the
resistance of and repression against it. This is an important story that
needs to be more fully told. Check out *a trailer
