WHEN MEXICAN FOLKORE MEETS U.S. POP CULTURE!!!! Border Bang is a passionate love letter to the Tijuana and US border, documenting the bootleg artifacts sold to locals and tourists alike. Reappropriating the bombardment of pop culture images is the border’s reaction to global issues and events, telling viewers and consumers not to glorify these situations but rather to acknowledge them through their subversive presentation. Border artisans and shysters digest the influx of international popular culture, reappropriating and reconfiguring images to express themselves and empower objects with subversive ideas masked underneath bold colors and text. Raised in Tijuana, Gutierrez crossed the border to the US to attend elementary and middle school. Each day, he was dazzled and entranced by the objects being sold, creating alternative narratives to the cartoon characters and celebrity portraits that he saw. Border Bang is a reflection of his childhood narrative, using images from Mickey Mouse to Tupac Shakur to convey the reflections and meditations of global events as witnessed by the border, exploring his love affair with Mexican pop and folk culture.

Mauro, a history teacher in South Texas, often watched and became a part of the frequent storms that swept the beaches on the Gulf of Mexico. But this time things were different. The violence of wind, sand and sky contained visions of Arab warriors and explorers of centuries past. Could he have been touched by the mythical spell of the Falconer, an Arab of the Middle ages, and could the Falconer's power reach up to him from a forgotten time to reveal some reality long hidden? Who is this Falconer and these Arabs and what is the message they bear to Hispanics like Mauro? The reader may be surprised at this centuries-old truth.
