MARIACHI HIGH
Executive Producer: Kelly Sheehan
Director/Producer: Ilana Trachtman
Director/Editor: Kim Connell
Genre: Documentary
Length: 1 Episode/60 Minutes
Broadcast Premiere: June 2012 on PBS

MARIACHI HIGH documents a year in the life of competitive high school mariachi musicians in the top-ranked ensemble Mariachi Halcon in the small border town of Zapata, Texas -- a flash point for the complex issues facing the fastest-growing ethnic group in the US. As President Obama sounds a call to lower Latino dropout rates, the highest in the country, MARIACHI HIGH turns a positive lens on the dreams and challenges of Mexican American teenage-hood. In this spirited coming-of-age story, authentic college-bound Latino role models compete to be the state's champion band while experiencing the trials and triumphs shared by all American teens. From nerve-racking band auditions to the thrill of the 2010 Mariachi Vargas Extravaganza in San Antonio, graduation and beyond, MARIACHI HIGH provides much-needed affirmative screen time for teens who are inspired by cultural pride and striving for excellence.
