Jesus Treviño is an award-winning director of television and documentary films. He has been celebrated for his commitment to economic justice and the rights of workers. In Treviño's 1972 film America Tropical, he tells the story of the controversial mural painted on a Los Angeles building in 1932 by Mexican artist David Alfaro Siqueiros. Now, almost forty years later, the mural's on-going restoration is due in no small part to his commitment to seeing it happen.
