Viva La Causa

Viva La Causa

Not just a colorful record of the making of a mural in Chicago's Pilsen community led by Ray Patlán, this film traces the mural movement of the mid-1970's back to murals in Mexico. Different people view the mural and reflect on its meaning for themselves as Latinos.

Extras included in this package:
- Video: A preview from the Kartemquin Films Collection: The Early Years Vol. 4 and extras. Compare side-by-side, the original transfer and the restored files of Winnie Wright Age 11, Now We Live On Clifton, Trick Bag, and Viva La Causa.
- Original Poster: Designed by KTQ Collective member, Betsy Martens, for the former "Haymarket Film and Video" screening operation that ran out of 1901 W. Wellington Ave. The event featured back-to-back screenings of Winnie Wright Age 11, Now We Live on Clifton, and Viva La Causa.
- Retro Photo: Gordon Quinn and Collective-era friends group photo in the turret of Kartemquin.
