KBOO and the Clinton Street Theater have partnered to bring you a monthly film series about....well, it could be about radio, or about anyone of the many programs that KBOO airs--politics, labor, human rights, and, of course, lots of music.

A new film or event every second Thursday of the month, so stayed tuned to the radio and check back on the website, because you never know what might be happening month to month.

We'll also collaborate on bringing you special events throughout the year like the annual celebrations for Zappa, Lennon, Miles Davis, and more.

IMDB User Review

Wonderful for fans of Mexican music and culture

6 June 2010 | by heybhc (Santa Rosa, California, USA)

I've loved this movie and the music in it for many years. It's about the music culture of Northern Mexico and the southwest of the United States. Stars like Flaco Jiminez and Lydia Mendoza appear along with other Tex-Mex musicians. I loaned it to a Mexican/American friend who was in his early sixties and when he returned it he confessed that it made him cry, because it took him back to his childhood as a migrant worker and things he hadn't thought about for years. To me that is a high recommendation. Even if you don't like this kind of music you'll get a kick out of Los Alegres del Teran playing VOLVER without missing a note in a horse corral while riders jostle them. Great documentary.
