This home movie captures scenes of a bullfight in El Paso’s sister city at Plaza de Toros de Ciudad Juárez. The Ortiz family crosses the border into Mexico to watch the show, filming as a matador goes up against a bull. Bullfighting is part of the shared Texas-Mexico culture found in border towns such as El Paso.
