Thirty years after its release, Blood In Blood Out a.k.a. Bound by Honor has not only cemented its spot in the Chicano Cinema canon, but also achieved the status of must-see cult-classic for movie-lovers in general. To celebrate its landmark anniversary, NYLFF brings the epic crime drama back to the big screen.
Within the rich and colorful Chicano culture of East Los Angeles, three cousins raised as brothers fiercely live by a generations-old tradition of family– power stronger than law…a force deeper than friendship. In one life-shattering moment, the trio is torn apart, forcing them to follow three separate paths: one searching for truth in the law, one expressing his passion through art, and one finding power in prison. Yet through it all, family and honor keep their lives intertwined as each strives for survival.
