Two celebratory films by Les Blank, that most warm, convivial, and richly human of American documentarians, both exploring the wealth of Mexican-American culture by focusing on the famed Norteño and Conjunto musicians of the Mexico- Texas borderlands, the migrant farming communities from which they come, and the social protest ethos inscribed in their music.
