Symbols of Resistance illuminates the untold stories of the Chican@ Movement with a focus on events in Colorado and New Mexico. The film engages student activists, the effect of police repression, and how issues of identity, land, and community still resonate in the Chican@ struggles of today. Through interviews with those who shaped the movement and rare historical footage, Symbols of Resistances offers a window into a dynamic moment in history and movement building.

Interviews include prominent Chicana leader Priscilla Falcón, activist lawyer Francisco “Kiko” Martínez, Mexican Liberation organizer Ricardo Romero, former director of El Pueblo History Museum Deborah Espinosa, and veteran reporter, photographer, and newspaper editor Juan Espinosa.

Closed captions and with Spanish subtitles.
