Rhapsody on the Rio Grande: A Confluence of Culture was awarded a Regional Emmy for "Documentary-Topical" from the Lone Star Chapter in 2017. Through interviews and music, Rhapsody on the Rio Grande: A Confluence of Culture is a powerful documentary that explores the impact of the Rio Grande on people, politics, culture, and music. The Rio Grande River has an ability to bring together diverse peoples. The musical score explores themes of US/Mexico border culture and history. The process of bringing the story to life took one year to create. Historians of the Texas/Mexico border and residents from Laredo were interviewed. The program took inspiration from an original music composition, "Rapsodia" written by TAMIU faculty member Dr. Colin Campbell. Campbell's haunting composition shows that music can unite and cross barriers, even at times when language fails to convey. It was performed in concert by the Laredo Philharmonic Orchestra, accompanied by Campbell and featured the famed Mariachi Nuevo Tecalitlán de Guadalajara.

I had the privilege of seeing this movie before it came out, and, like most of Bo de Peña films, it blew me away.
