2022, Mexico,United States of America, 84 min, English and Spanish with English and Spanish subtitles.

“A self-reflexive documentary on the extraordinary Mexican/Chicano performance artist Guillermo Gómez-Peña’s 40-year career alongside his international troupe La Pocha Nostra. When the media is filled with demonizing stories about the US–Mexico border, the film presents the philosophical frameworks of an artist with a dedication to artistic interventions on that border, and presents a portrait of his troupe on the road for three years. Featuring footage from his archive, Gómez-Peña enacts his interventions by reclaiming and “queering the border” as a laboratory for utopian ideas and experiments.”
