ITVS recently approved funding for the documentary Mariachi High by filmmakers Kim Connell and Ilana Trachtman.
In a part of America that rarely makes headlines, there is a small town with a group of teenagers who will captivate your ears and warm your heart. Mariachi High presents a year in the life of the champion mariachi ensemble at Zapata High School on the Rio Grande in South Texas. As they compete and perform with astonishing musical virtuosity, these teens, and the music they make, will inspire, surprise, and bring you to your feet.
Join ITVS is congratulating the filmmakers!
