Mi Otro Yo (My Other Self)

Expanding his exploration of marginalized identity and border culture, videomaker Artenstein's MI OTRO YO looks at the work of Chicano artists living in California. Their cultural ties to Mexico and historical presence in the U.S., well before it became the "new world", broaden the contemporary debates on identity and multiculturalism. MI OTRO YO features the views and work of artists like Luis Valdez, Amalia Mesa Bains, Jose Montoya, Carmen Lomas Garza, Daniel Valdez, Malaquias Montoya, Harry Gamboa Jr, Rupert Garcia, Judith Baca and Guillermo Gómez Peña, who also narrates his poem Califas.
