Areas of Interest
Independent and Underground Film, Race and Ethnicity, Los Angeles Culture and Geography
Andres Garza explores independent and underground cinema’s cultural, political and aesthetic history, as well as its critical discourse. His research draws from film studies, ethnic studies and the field of cultural geography. He is primarily interested in alternative and independent modes of cultural production, as well as the relationship between formal aesthetics, minority politics, financing, and the labor required to create and maintain alternative media practices.
