A beautiful and timely restoration of the classic 1979 Les Blank documentary Chulas Fronteras (Beautiful Borders), a soulful and uplifting celebration of the Norteño music and culture along the Texas-Mexico border. Música norteña evolved from the turn of the 20th century into a unique Mexican-American hybrid, from lively dance tunes to political work songs. Featuring pioneering figures like Narciso Martínez and Lydia Mendoza, the documentary captures performances of música norteña in dance halls, at weddings, barbecues, cockfights and in horse paddocks. With a rich soundtrack of songs about unrequited love and migrant struggles, Chulas Fronteras is a joyous, multi-layered film that celebrates music and its power as a form of social protest against oppression.
