CGiii Comment

Performance art is an acquired taste. Acquiring that 'taste' is no mean feat...especially when you have to sit through erratic, self-indulgent nonsense such as this!

The vast majority of performance artists share the same critical flaw, they forget about their intended audience. Accessibility and alienation [then] become major issues. Now, when you have a director trying to direct a performance artist for a documentary, that director has to take control and drive the story towards the intended destination. This is more like a magical mystery tour that arrives exactly where it started out.

The Mexican/US border is as contentious a place as anywhere in the world. A gateway to the land of the free, the American Dream...surely, a better, more contextual film could have been gleaned from these disparate stories?!?

This vibrant documentary celebrates Guillermo Gómez-Peña and the contribution his radical, queer, anti-colonial art has made to conversations around border-thinking, gender politics and Latinx identity.
