Louis Hock: The Mexican Tapes: the Second Generation (working title)

Louis Hock (San Diego, Visual Arts) Faculty

In 1986 I completed a four part series of one-hour video tapes titled “The Mexican Tapes: A Chronicle of Life Outside the Law”.  The work followed the lives of my neighbors in a community of undocumented Mexicans in San Diego County over a five-year period, focusing on three families.  I intend to pick up the immigration narrative after twenty years to chronicle the lives of the children and grandchildren of those families.
