DIA DE LA INDEPENDENCIA (Spoof of “Independence Day”)

This blast from the pasado was produced in 1997 by Lalo Alcaraz and myself, Alex Rivera.

DIA DE LA INDEPENDENCIA is a satirical movie trailer that mimics the cinematic obsession with ‘alien invasions’ (Men In Black, Starship Troopers, and of course, Independence Day). In making DIA DE LA INDEPENDENCIA, we inversed the xenophobic undertones of anti-alien sci-fi, by imagining a racialized, righteous, alien invasion from South of the Border.
