Description

A Life In Print profiles Xavier Viramontes, one of the most influential Hispanic artists of our time. His iconoclastic silk screen poster, BOYCOTT GRAPES, for the United Farmworkers, awakened a nation and rallied the Chicano movement in art.

The film showcases Viramontes at work in his studio, interwoven with a retrospective of his printed artwork. Also featured are the works of over 50 Bay Area artists, including Tim Drescher, Juan R. Fuentes, Pirkle Jones, Yolanda M. Lopez, Ralph Maradiaga, Emmanuel Montoya, las Mujeres Muralistas, Patricia Rodriguez, the Royal Chicano Air Force, and René Yañez.
