Celebrated Mexican/Chicanx performance artist Guillermo Gómez-Peña and his performance troupe La Pocha Nostra have spent their careers working with conceptual, social, and physical borders. Continually developing multilayered narratives and large-scale performance projects from a border perspective, Gómez-Peña and La Pocha Nostra create what critics have termed “Chicano cyber-punk performances” and “ethno-techno art.” With intimate access to the artist and his troupe, 100 Ways to Cross the Border unabashedly documents the impact of Gómez-Peña's work and his contributions to conversations on Latinx and Chicanx identity, politics, and border theory. (Amber Bemak, 2022, Spanish and English with English subtitles, DCP, 84 minutes)
