Severo Perez’s 1995 film, …and the earth did not swallow him, is adapted from Tomás Rivera’s classic 1971 Chicano novel, …y no se lo tragó la tierra. It beautifully evokes the substance and spirit of Rivera’s work, and has won international critical acclaim, including top honors at film festivals worldwide. An online exhibit built on the Omeka platform was created from clips of the director discussing the making of the film and materials from the production archive for the film housed in The Wittliff Collections at Texas State University.
