New Documentary – American Masters – PBS to air September 2015
A new documentary on Pedro E. Guerrero will air on PBS on the American Masters series this fall. Produced by Paradigm Productions in Berkeley, California, with major funding from the National Endowment for the Arts and Latino Public Broadcasting, this documentary will bring Guerrero’s remarkable story to a national audience. Based on 15 hours of interviews with Guerrero in 2010, as well as archival footage, and selections from Guerrero’s comprehensive archive, it charts the unlikely career of a young man who left behind his small-town Arizona beginnings, overcame discrimination and found acclaim in the creative mecca of post-World War II New York City. At once unique, universal and truly American, Pedro Guerrero’s story will inspire a new generation of artists to undertake their own journeys of discovery.
Air Date: September 18, 2015
