The Department of Spanish, SMLLC, NUI Maynooth invites you to join us for the Irish Premiere of the documentary film Lalo Guerrero: The Original Chicano. Throughout his long and extraodinarily prolific musical career, Lalo Guerrero chronicled the development of a unique Mexican-American identity in the United States. His music, which incorporated such diverse influences as boogie woogie, the Mexican ballad form known as the corrido and socio-political parody, addressed issues such as the racism endured by Mexican-Americans, their struggle for better working conditions during the farm workers' strike of the 1960s and their lack of representation in the US media. The screening will be followed by a discussion with director Dan Guerrero. The event will take place on Monday, 7 March 2011 from 4.00 to 6.00 pm in CS1, Callan Building, NUI Maynooth. All welcome.
