As I Walk Through The Valley

Directed by Charlie Vela and Ronnie Garza

2017, USA, 86 min

As I Walk Through The Valley unfolds over four decades of music. In the 60’s, garage rockers who mix the influence of American pop with the wild nightlife of Reynosa, Mexico create a trans-national scene. In the 70’s, musicians inspired by the social movements of the time, embrace their roots and reinterpret traditional Ranchera music to develop a distinctive Chicano sound. By the 80’s, the first signs of punk and hardcore emerge. Alienated kids at the height of Tejano music form bands of their own. With no venues, they fill burned out buildings and quinceñera halls and live DIY.  Finally, the punks of the 90’s develop coalitions and pool resources to create a lasting infrastructure in the dawn of the internet-age.
