USA | 1976 | 58 minutes | Les Blank

Opens September 13, 2019

Chulas Fronteras is a zesty introduction to Norteña music and culture that exists along the Texas-Mexican border. The music is a fusion of traditional Mexican harmonies, German dancehall rhythms and a little something extra.

Chulas Fronteras will be followed by the short Del Mero Corazón
