Once Upon A Time in the Bronx



Shot between 1989 and 1992, Once Upon A Time In The Bronx remains a document of it's time. A collage of sequences and segments mixing Spanglish rap narration, spaghetti western styling, and animated dolls depicting homeboys and flygirls, this Bronx-based slice-of-life depicts male bonding, machismo, and Latino culture in an episodic story influenced by hip hop sampling techniques. An anti-documentary portrait of the rap duo Latin Empire. All rights avaiable, including video cassette and broadcast, US and foreign.
