_100 Ways to Cross the Border_

A film by Amber Bemak
Written by Guillermo Gómez Peña and Amber Bemak

Sunday, April 14th, 4pm

With an introduction by Guillermo Gómez Peña at The Museum of Human Achievement  3600 Lyons Rd, Austin, TX 78702

A self-reflexive “performative documentary” on the extraordinary “Post Mexican/Chicanx” performance artist Guillermo Gómez-Peña’s 40-year career of radical artistic practice alongside his international troupe La Pocha Nostra. At a time when the mainstream media is filled with demonizing stories about the US–Mexico border, the film presents the philosophical frameworks of an artist with a sustained dedication to highly impactful, innovative artistic interventions on that border, and presents a unique portrait of his beloved troupe LPN on the road for 3 years. Featuring exclusive footage from his personal archive, Gómez-Peña enacts his artistic interventions by reclaiming and “queering the border” as a laboratory for utopian ideas and artistic experimentation.
