Frontera! Revolt and Rebellion on the Rio Grande
Frontera! Revolt and Rebellion on the Rio Grande
Director: John Jota Leaños
USA/2014/Animated Documentary/ 20 min
West Coast Premiere
The Pueblo Revolt had to happen. Life was out of balance. Drought, hunger, colonial violence and religious persecution brought indigenous societies of New Mexico to the brink of collapse. The Pueblo people orchestrated the unthinkable: a pan-Indian uprising successfully expelling the Spanish occupiers from the entire Rio Grande region leading to an indigenous cultural and social renaissance. 'Frontera!' traces the seminal events and colonial entries that have shaped the deeply contested territories of the US-Mexico borderlands. Native and Chicana narrators recall this living history through memory, play, humor and song. The film is a collaboration between Chicano and Native artists in New Mexico and California.
