Santa Barbara, CA – The Atkinson Gallery is pleased to present Fellino is the Greatest Chicano Revolutionary Filmmaker of all time. However, there’s one little problem--Fellino has never completed a film. Performed by the comedy troupe Chicano Secret Service, Fellino and his muse, La Star, are Chicanas/os that aspire to subvert cultural oppression by creating Chicana/o Films that will show the world the positive, productive life of the Chicanada en Aztlan. As Fellino declares, “Chicano Film by any means necessary!”
The pop-up exhibition at the Atkinson Gallery includes photographs and texts. The reception on Thursday, August 31 will include performances by Chicano Secret Service, Tia Lucita, Che Castro, and Dr. Saveletodo.
Produced by Dr. Tomas Avila Carrasco, PhD via the Chicano Secret Service.
