Held in the MCC Theater.

Symbols of Resistance looks at the history of the Chican@ Movement as it emerges in the 1970s with a focus on events in Colorado and Northern New Mexico. The documentary explores the struggle for land, the student movement, and community struggles against police repression. Specifically, it challenges the criminalization of immigration by emphasizing the history of the U.S. expansion and occupation of northern Mexico during the Mexican-American War (1846–48) – when “the border crossed people.”
