The Chicano Movement

An analysis of the poem/film, “I Am Joaquin” and the film “Chicana” and examines their involvement with the Chicano Movement.

In this paper I will discuss the role the poem by Corky Gonzales and the film “I am Joaquin” had on the Chicano Movement. Within the paper these important questions will be asked: Why were these texts important? What were they seeking to create? What were their limitations? Also, within the paper I will integrate the film “Chicana” by Morales and how it relates to the movement.
