Chicano Borderlands Cinema and the Proxemics of Encounter

Dr. A. Gabriel Meléndez
Thursday, October 24, 2013
Northern New Mexico College
High Tech Building, Room 115
6:30 p.m – 7:30 p.m.

A lecture from Hidden Chicano Cinema which examines how New Mexico, situated within the boundaries of the United States, became a stand-in for the exotic non-western world that tourists, artists, scientists, and others sought to possess at the dawn of early filmmaking, a disposition stretching from the silent era to today as filmmakers screen their fantasies of what they wished the Southwest Borderlands to be.
