Festival de Flor y Canto de Aztlan, Films and Photographs

The first Festival de Flor y Canto (Festival of Flower and Song), a literary celebration that took place in 1973, brought together Chicano novelists, poets, and short story writers in Los Angeles. After this initial success, subsequent festivals were held in Austin, San Antonio, and other cities. Fortunately many of these early events were captured on video and this website from the USC Digital Library offers up a few wonderful highlights. Visitors to the site can watch and listen to the writers and artists Jorge Alvarez, Olivia Castellano, Juan A. Contreras, and many others. Also, visitors can look through photographs captured at the events. As a whole, this is a great introduction to some of these writers and this fascinating series of gatherings in American literary and cultural history.
