Film Screening: Bound by Honor

May 13

5:00 pm: Reception & Book Signing
6:00 pm: Pre-Film Talk with Jimmy Santiago Baca
7:00 pm: Film Screening

Our Summer Film Series kicks off with a 30th anniversary screening of Bound by Honor (Blood In, Blood Out) and special guest Jimmy Santiago Baca.

Bound by Honor, an American epic crime drama, directed by Taylor Hackford, has become a cult-classic film within the Mexican-American community. Based on the true-life experiences of poet Jimmy Santiago Baca, the film focuses on Chicano step-brothers Paco and Cruz, and their biracial cousin Miklo. Bound by Honor follows their intertwining lives from 1972 to 1984, when they start out as members of a street gang in East Los Angeles. As dramatic incidents occur, their lives and friendships are forever changed. Bound by Honor was filmed in 1991 throughout the Spanish-speaking areas of Los Angeles and inside California’s San Quentin State Prison.

Directed by Taylor Hackford | 1993 | 180 minutes | English | Rated R (strong violence, language, sex and drug content.)
