"This Taco Truck Kills Fascists"
(Rodrigo Dorfman, 2018, 61 min, USA, Color, DCP)
New Orleans-based performance activist Jose Torres-Tama has a dream: to create a revolutionary Taco Truck Theatre with a simple message: "No guacamole for immigrant haters". Inspired by Woody Guthrie's immortal motto, "This Taco Truck Kills Fascists" is an epic journey born out of the urgency of the now and our responsibility to engage and confront white supremacy with the weaponized beauty of art - and humor.
