Chulas Fronteras

Post Film Q&A with documentary filmmaker Chris Simon and musica Norteña musicians.

Newly restored in 4k, Chulas Fronteras is a joyous introduction to the music and culture of the Texas-Mexican border. From lively dance tunes to soulful, political work songs, musica Norteña fuses traditional Mexican harmonies with central European dancehall rhythms and a little something extra. This 1976 film celebrates the famed Mexican-American musicians of the borderlands, the migrant farming communities from which they come, the strong family bonds of Tejanos, and the social protest ethos inscribed in their music. Blank & Strachwitz’s film brims with tender affection for its subjects, the vitality of their marvelous music, and the generosity of spirit they show in the face of hardship.
