To support the collaboration and mentorship between artists John Jota Leaños and Crystal González for the making of ¡Eureka!, an animated documentary that traces key moments of colonial California and the making of the West from Native and Latina/o perspectives. The documentary uses cartoons, music and humor to weave an alternative social history of California, revealing histories of migration, displacement and racial tension that shaped the American west. Animator John Jota Leaños will work with emerging animator Crystal González to produce storyboards and character design for the documentary animation as well as support the development of González’ own animation projects.
