42nd San Antonio CineFestival is honored to host the Premiere Theatrical Screening of the feature film “TRULY TEXAS MEXICAN”
Synopsis of TRULY TEXAS MEXICAN
Delicious “Comida Casera,” (home cooking) of Texas Mexican American families, made famous in the late 1800s by indigenous businesswomen, chefs. Later dubbed “Chili Queens,” the innovative chefs were harassed and forced out of business, victims of racism.
The road movie weaves through San Antonio, Corpus Christi, Brownsville and other Texas cities, naming the racism that erased Native American history. Intrepid women kept on cooking innovative dishes, culinary creations, and in the process, strengthened the community’s living memory and heritage. They build a table where ALL ARE WELCOME.
Sponsored by the National Endowment for the Arts, City of San Antonio Department of Arts & Culture, San Antonio Film Commission, the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation and the Ford Foundation.
