A Documentary Film by Hans Fjellestad
CAT. #: AVD001
"Tijuana has more to do with science fiction novels than history books about Mexico." - Torolab
If necessity is the mother of invention, then Tijuana is where she gave birth and raised her kid! FRONTIER LIFE digs into this strangely inventive city for stories of car worship, street racing, water flow, emergency architecture and a vibrant electronic music scene.
