Description: Del Mero Corazon is a lyrical journey through the heart of Chicano culture, as reflected in the love songs of the Tex-Mex Norte-o music tradition. Love songs are the poetry of daily life - a poetry of passion and death, hurt and humor, pleasures and torn dreams of desire. In the film, these songs travel from intimate family gatherings to community dance halls, from the borderlands to wherever La Raza works, lives, settles down. They are passed along, changed, and turned into new songs - always sung from the heart.
Companion piece to Chulas Fronteras. Also, there are two audio tracks. The first is the movie's normal audio, and the second is commentary by the filmmakers.
