THE SUREÑO

The Sureño is a documentary film and photography project. Sureños, meaning "Southerners," are members of a Mexican gang in California whose greater allegiance is to the Mexican Mafia. Miguel (a.k.a. "Silent") was jumped (i.e., initiated) into his local gang at the age of 23. Now, he must go to great lengths to protect himself, his family, and his fellow gang members from the omnipresent threat of inner-city violence.
