Independent Visions: Is It Really So Strange?
This intimate documentary explores the new, but equally fanatical, fan base of The Smiths and Morrissey: Latino youth in East Los Angeles. Making the connection between The Smiths’ working-class, Manchesterraised, ethnic Irish experience and that of the sons and daughters of Mexican immigrants in Los Angeles, Is It Really So Strange? is the first documentary that allows the fans themselves to speak at length about their lives, their loves, and their brief encounters with their idol. Presented in conjunction with the CSULA One Campus, One Book committee (2012-13 selection, The Madonnas of Echo Park by Brando Skyhorse.) Directed by William E. Jones, 2005, 80 minutes.
