Description

A look at the life and work of the late Los Angeles artist, Carlos Almaraz, through the lens of an immigrant child coming to this country to live his American Dream of becoming a famous artist. Using interviews and personal journal entries his inner demons are explored, as well as his passions, his rise as a beloved leader of the Chicano Art Movement and his subsequent success as an artist who is ultimately lost to AIDS in the late 1980s.
