California State University San Marcos I’m No Longer Here Film Essay

This week, please view the film I’m No Longer Here. You will find this film on Netflix. I am interested in understanding how you make sense of gang formations around the art and practice of slow-down cumbia dancing as resistance in Mexico and how street-level gang politics promoted forced migration and struggle in the US. How do you imagine this story speaks to the formation of gangs in the US? What types of interventions could be used to protect the main character? How can Ulisses feel a better sense of belonging in the US after leaving everything behind? How does the film speak to the sociology of gangs from your perspective?
