American Homeboy explores the complex origins of pachuco and cholo culture which sprouted from American soil more than 100 years ago in response to wartime sentiment, social alienation, and government discrimination only to become a pop culture phenomenon. The film draws from rare interviews shot on 5K with leading Mexican American historians, academics, artists, activists, cholos, and former law enforcement officers against a backdrop of restored archival footage. (Dir. by Brandon Loran Maxwell, 2023, USA, 120 mins., Not Rated)
