"The Eye Begins in the Hand" ("El Ojo Comienza En La Mano") is a tribute to campesino histories in rural California through the artwork of Ruben A. Sanchez, an artist largely absent from critical conversations on Chicanx art. The film offers an unsentimental reckoning with the fate of many cultural workers that struggle between paying rent and/or creative endeavors.
