Chicano Video

UC Berkeley has a resource list that is a useful reference for looking up Chicano films, videos and publications. This is an example not only of resourcing Chicana materials, but also of a library that is making headway into integrating digital material with books. The library states:”The Media Resources Center (MRC) is the UC Berkeley Library’s primary collection of materials in electronic non-print (audio and visual) formats. These formats include: videocassettes, DVDs (Digital Versatile Discs), and laser discs; compact audio discs; audiocassettes; slides; and interactive multimedia materials.”
One good DVD by Susan Racho is “The Bronze Screen.” By using the scene selection feature, you can easily include a 5 or 10 minute section in a class. I like the section about names and labels. It’s funny and revealing.
