100 WAYS TO CROSS THE BORDER is a playful and mesmerizing performance documentary on the extraordinary Mexican/Chicanx performance artist Guillermo Gómez-Peña’s 40+ year career of radical artistic practice alongside his international troupe La Pocha Nostra.

Director Amber Bemak presents the philosophical frameworks of an artist with highly impactful, innovative artistic interventions, and presents a unique portrait of his beloved troupe La Pocha Nostra.

Gómez-Peña enacts his artistic interventions by reclaiming and “queering the border” as a laboratory for utopian ideas and artistic experimentation.
