About the Author

LUIS VALDEZ is acknowledged as the founder of modern Chicano theater and film of the United States. Born to migrant farm workers, Valdez spent his early life working in the fields with his family. Valdez joined the United Farm Workers and staged improvisational theater to further the causes of the UFW, which led to the formation of his theater group, El Teatro Campesino. Among his theatrical productions are The Shrunken Head of Pancho Villa, Bandido, and I Don’t Have to Show You No Stinking Badges. His film La Bamba (Columbia Tri Star, 1987), the tragic story of singer Ritchie Valens, proved wildly successful and launched the screen careers of Lou Diamond Philips and Esai Morales. He is a faculty member and the founding director of the Teledramatic Arts and Technology Department at California State University, Monterey Bay.
