Book News Annotation:
A product of the Los Angeles barrio, Trevino was a participant in and observer of the Chicano movement from its beginning, and it has figured highly in both his mainstream and alternative filmmaking. Here he both recounts his own experience and corrects some aspects of the movement he thinks other accounts have gotten wrong.
Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
Noted filmmaker Jesus Salvador Trevino participated in and documented the most important events in the Mexican-American Civil Rights Movement of the late 1960s and early 1970s. Coming of age during the turmoil of the sixties, Trevino recorded the struggles to organize students and workers into the largest social and political movement in the history of Latino communities in the United States.
