Antonia: A Chicana Story
A film by Luz María Gordillo and Juan Javier Pescador
5:00 p.m. | Todd Hall 125
View flyer »

This documentary film journeys through the experiences and memories of Antonia Castañeda from her migrant family's cycles between Crystal City, south Texas, and the Yakima Valley in Washington state, to her coming of age as a Chicana activist, community organizer, feminist, teacher, mentor, and scholar. Shifting away from documentarian conventions, the film proposes a non-linear set of narratives where past and present are intertwined by intense mementos dealing with patriarchy, subordination, sexuality, survival, and self-discovery.
Directed by Luz María Gordillo and Juan Javier Pescador, 2013 (55 minutes).
