This program will showcase past and current documentary work by award winning film director Ray Telles. In order to represent the Raza community in an equitable way, Ray will address the role of a Chicana/o film maker in producing how events are narrated, remembered, and placed in conversation with Chicana/o history. Day one of the program will begin with examining parts of Ray’s latest documentaries to build a conversation around the role of camera work, representation, setting, and gaps in history.

Day 2: Telling our Stories: Fight in the Fields

Day two will culminate with the screening of “Fight in the Fields” and address the United Farm Workers movement, representation of César E. Chávez, and how the past is framed.
