THE DEATH OF RADIO BANDIDO: A CHICANO MYSTERY


I need your help!!! My homie, filmaker Pepe Urquijo is making a documentary about a friend of his Oscar Gomez, an Oldies DJ from UC Davis in Sacramento, Califas who was mysteriously killed in 1994. Please take a look at the trailer below...


Here is where you can help... the project is in need of funds to help finish the film, they have 9 days to raise a little over $18,000 in order to fulfill their KickStarter goal of $22,000. I know, I know we are in an economic crisis, and unemployment is high but I'm pretty sure you can spare a few bucks, donations start at $1, that means you can donate a few bucks or more if you can afford it only by not buying a soda today, or buying one less drink at the club tonight, or instead of spending $15 at the theater to watch some stupid mainstream movie you can donate to this film. I know I have a few thousand readers of my blog, imagine if each of you donated a few dollars we can easily come up with half of what's needed to fund this project. By doing so you will be helping so many people who have worked very hard to put this project together, and helping to spread the word around about Oscar's story in order to open up his unsolved murder case... Oscar needs justice, his family needs justice, we need justice!!! So Please Please Please take a minute and click HERE to go to the KickStarter page and donate, I promise it only takes a minute!
I feel like we always complain how we don't have enough films depicting the Chicano/ Latino experince here in the US, well here is your chance to help... please do so by donating mula, and spreading the word around, if you have a blog or website please post it, post it on Facebook, Tumblr, post it everywhere, I feels good to help... Lil Brown Baby Jesus will pay you back ten folds!!! Si Se Puede!!!

Check out this dope poster the homie Ernesto Yerena made... he's down for the cause, are you?!!!

A BETTER LIFE




Awww man, this movie hits home... and not only for me but for so many Brown folks trying to have a better life in the good ol' US of A (Aztlan). All these fucked up laws like SB1070 try to make it so hard for us to work, go to school, to drive, to travel, and pretty much makes racial profiling legal... the seemingly overwhelming anti-immigration sentiment going around can feel scary, but the reality is only a small percentage of the US population feels this way, the bad thing is they have the money and resources to spread the hate around. What we have to do is not fall victim to these assholes, and keep fighting for our rights as human beings, and as rightful residents of this land. Don't be scared, because you know that deep inside these racist jerks are more scared than us... scared that our numbers are growing and we will soon take back what's ours. Try to stay out of trouble, try to break the stereotypes, show them wrong, let them see that we work harder than they do, that we live honest lives, and that we have compassion for people as they should too... and always speak up for injustices, we have a voice and a strong one at that...  La Lucha Sigue!!!
