Media Projects

These videos are part of the El Teatro Campesino Archives, CEMA 5 at the University of California, Santa Barbara Davidson Library. They can be found in the California Ethnic and Multicultural archives in Special Collections. The finding aid for El Teatro Campesino Archives has a more detailed description of the videos.

A Grant from UC MEXUS to the UCSB Library as part of the ImaginArte multidisciplinary initiative has helped to fund the conversion of these 118 videos. They contain El Teatro Campesino plays, television specials, concerts, interviews, news footage, commercials, and workshops. This series includes the first known film that has a segment about the Teatro, "Huelga," narrated by Cesar Chavez. Other films range from the early actos to television specials on the movie "Zoot Suit." There are films of scenes from plays and whole plays, interviews with Luis Valdez and others, footage of the twentieth anniversary gala of El Teatro Campesino, and a documentary on the history of the Teatro made in 1981. They originate in several locations, including Monterey, Sacramento, San Jose, and various parts of Mexico.
