The video, Latino Crew, was produced as part of a video installation by Alberto Gomez that was first shown in the Oh Canada exhibition at the Art Gallery of Ontario in 1996. It explores how a group of young Latinos living in a public housing complex at Lawrence Avenue and the Allen Expressway in Toronto view their individual and collective identity in Canadian society. In the video, the Latino youths express their perspectives and feelings about the conditions that frame their lives, the difficulties they experience from society's identification of them as Latinos and immigrants, their response to the urban landscape in which they live, and why some of them have chosen gang culture to assert their sense of collective identity.
