Walkout ( Visual )
1 edition published in 2006 in English and held by 467 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Based on a true story, the film describes how L.A.'s public schools treat Mexican-American students in 1968, with a mixture of negligence, apathy, and occasional cruelty. Graduation rates are low, students caught speaking Spanish in class are paddled on the spot, they are denied access to bathrooms at lunch. Paula Crisostomo is smart and gets good grades, but when she attends a student leadership conference at a wealthy Westside facility, she begins to see the bigger cultural picture. With inspiration from a sympathetic young teacher, Sal Castro, Paula becomes a major force in organizing huge walkouts from five East L.A. schools

For Love or Country is a biopic about Cuban trumpeter Arturo Sandoval. It explores his life as an adult, when he becomes increasingly dissatisfied with Fidel Castro's constraints on his music and the politics of a "Revolution" that declares his real musical love, American jazz, illegal.
