PBS Documentary: "Mariachi High"

A new documentary to be aired on PBS this season will follow teen mariachi musicians in Rio Grande, Texas as they compete in national competitions.

“I hope viewers are truly compelled by these kids,” said co-director/producer of Mariachi High Ilana Trachtman. “They are smart, stable, strong-minded, dedicated and talented, and we never see Mexican-American [students] like them on television. I hope viewers are inspired by them, learn something new about this rich culture, and at the same time discover the beauty of mariachi music.”
