Edward James Olmos talks about making critically acclaimed ¡Alambrista!, with pioneering indie filmmaker Robert M. Young. The film was released on Blu-ray on April 17, as part of the Criterion Collection.
¡Alambrista! was Mr. Young’s directorial debut, and tells the story of a Mexican man who crosses the border illegally into the U.S. in order to find work to better support his family.
Mr. Olmos has a cameo role (credited as “1st drunk”) in the 1977 film.
