Many people consider the Mexican-American journalist a martyr of the Chicano Movement after he was struck by tear gas projectile fired by a sheriff’s deputy during a 1970 riot in Los Angeles. A new documentary that focuses not on Salazar’s notorious death, but rather his life, shows how he questioned his own cultural identity as he moved in and out of Mexican and American worlds.
