DAC Tijuana Cinema Discussion

posting a one-paragraph response to that Discussion’s readings and posing one discussion question that we may use for interaction or for lecture-discussion. Please also reply to at least two of your peer’s responses.

The responses are not academic essays but rather opportunities for you to meaningfully engage with the themes of the readings. Simply summarizing the readings will only achieve you 10 points, your interpretation or analysis would add 10 more points, the discussion question 5 points, and the interaction with your peers 5 more points for a total of 30 points per posting. Consider what concept, idea, or takeaway did you find most meaningful?

As the quarter progress, your goal is to further develop your analytic skills. Eventually, your postings should engage the readings’ content and draw connections between readings. Important: 1) Plagiarized/copied responses will earn 0 points, 2) posts should be at least 125 words, and 3) good luck.

Please also reply to these two students:

A: The author of this piece, Stephanie Fuller, wrote about Tijuana’s reputation in the film industry and about how it continues to affect those that live there. Tijuana was a hotspot for Hollywood actors who would cross the border to drink, gamble, and do other illegal activities while in Mexico. This border town was given a sketch reputation due to its historical ties that stuck such as the Hollywood films; but Tijuana was still the Safe Haven Americans would turn to in distress.

It’s interesting that Tijuana was able to uphold the same views of itself for almost a century, although it was not just old films that portrayed Mexico in this way. New shows have portrayed the same sketchy drug dealing image of Tijuana and other border towns. Tijuana was used as a sort of halfway point between the United States and Mexico where people could go to get away but it’d be dangerous.

Why is Tijuana still being portrayed as a big drug city, heavily involved with the cartel? Instead of cleaning up the city’s image people have continued to show Tijuana as a major drug port. There’s so many people in Tijuana now that there are so many different stories of people who live there. Why is Tijuana not used for basic story telling, stories of families coming together and meeting or finding each other in Tijuana? It’s not all drugs and gangs.
