Restoring Quetzalcoatl

United States

Horacio Jones Director


    After 40 years, the original artists of the Chicano Park murals, through a grant from Caltrans received the opportunity to re-invigorate the aging murals with new techniques, fresh ideas, and seasoned talent.

    The documentary delves into the original artists' motives and aspirations to transform the park into a creative outlet for future generations, while maintaining it as a center for free expression.

    This film is timely as older public art across almost every major US city is deteriorating and needs to be restored.

    The documentary brings this national issue to the forefront.

    Additionally, as the original artists grow older like the murals, it is important to document their vision and involvement in the creation and restoration of the murals for the benefit of everyone.
