Espejos: Reflections of a Culture is a documentary film shot in 1986 and 1987 by independent film maker, Millie Paul. The film documents the work of several Chicano muralists: Manuel Martinez, Carlos Sandoval, Lorenzo Ramirez, Carlotta Espinoza, and Roberto Lucero, and shows how the murals created by the artists relate to the Mexican-American community. Paul received a grant from the National Endowment for the Arts to complete the project.
