Director Biography - Andy Galloway

Born and raised in Dallas, Texas. I earned my BS in RTVF from the University of Texas. I earned my MA in History from UT Pan-American and am working on my MFA in Documentary Studies and Production from UNT. When my passions drew me towards documentary film making, I liked to tell the story of those on the periphery. This is reflected in my award winning films such as Round Pegs, Square Hole (2013), and Wally (2014).

Director Statement

In my studies of Texas history during the end of Spanish rule and the Mexican colonial period as well as republic, voices of Tejanos have been absent. This only allows half the picture. In this documentary I longed to include those voices and also place Texas into the stream of Mexican History.
