Folk Frontera

Far West Texas is a place where local folklore looms as large as the landscape. Two fronteriza women — one a public radio music show host, the other a Mariachi and folklórico dancer — live in two cultures at the same time, as they struggle to find their place in the vast Chihuahuan Desert. Touches of magical realism infuse this portrait of life along the U.S.- Mexico border.
