Truly Texas Mexican Film Plática

Thursday, April 1, 2021 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

“Truly Texas Mexican” is a road movie that weaves through Texas cities, naming the racism that erased indigenous history, while celebrating the food that has kept community memory and heritage alive. Over time and during conquest, Texas Mexican home cooking, or “comida casera,” sustained indigenous identity. Cooking foods like nopalitos, deer, mesquite and tortillas, women were/are leaders in the cultural resistance against colonization.

Please join Esperanza here for a Live-Streamed Plática with the film’s executive producer, chef/writer Adán Medrano – along with director Aníbal Capoano, producer Virginia Díaz, and featured San Antonio caring community resident/leader and cook Christine Ortega!
