Against Mexico: The Making of Heroes and Enemies
Producer: Michelle Garcia
Genre: Webisode
Program Length: 1 Webisode/12 Minutes

They stare at each other down the barrel of their rifles, Mexican vs. white, and fire in the name of History. Each year dozens of men suit up in the uniforms of Texian rebels and Mexican soldados, pitch tents and recreate the Tejas of 175 years ago in the name of remembering and celebrating the legendary uprising against Mexico.

Against Mexico: The Making of Heroes and Enemies, a short documentary, illustrates how myths and history of wars and battles informs perceptions about ‘heroes’ and ‘enemies’ and how the echoes of history can be heard in current debates about who is entitled to claim the mantle of ‘American.’
