“Chips & Salsa” is a new documentary that explores how three small, family-owned restaurants in long-established Mexican-American neighborhoods stabilize and provide economic stimulus to their communities:
Eduardo Garza and Carol Mendoza Fisher ask the owners about their family history and impact in their neighborhood. James Sanders assembled these bilingual short stories into “Chips & Salsa,” a documentary video about the thriving entrepreneurial spirit that gives San Antonio its unique flavor.
James E. Sanders, Jr., an African American Director of Photography, is keenly interested in using artistic documentary video to generate discussion around social change. He and Catherine Lee, Producer, received support from the City of San Antonio’s Department of Arts and Culture’s stART Place fund to create and present “Chips & Salsa.” We have partnered with SAPL and BiblioTech to follow this video premiere with a series of screenings at libraries across the city.
Interactive community screenings are scheduled at these neighborhood library branches.
