Ralph Maradiaga Papers
Ralph Maradiaga (1934-1985) the director and producer of these films was one of the founding members of Galeria de la Raza (1970), a non-profit community arts organization in the Latino Mission District of San Francisco. He also is a co-founder of Cine Accion, a San Francisco organization that was created to promote Latin American Cinema and showcase Chicano/Latino films and filmmakers. Maradiaga has mentored many Chicano artists. Maradiaga had two M.A. degrees: one, in printmaking from San Francisco State University and the other in documentary film-making from Stanford University. Many of these films from the 1970s show the influence of the indigenous cultural roots of Mexico in the Chicano movement.
