...Guillermo Gomez-Pena's Dangerous Border Crossers.
I have to say, this guy really turns me on.
Though his progressive (even radical) politics can't be challenged, I love the way he doesn't hesitate to take on the "ethno-fundamentalists" of his own people (the Chicano movement) and challenge them in the same way he challenges those on the right. That's what art does.
Here's the site of his performance art troupe, La Pocha Nostra.
