Efrain Gutierrez is a Chicano filmmaker whose film Don't Bury Me Alive! is the first Chicano-produced feature film. It addressed a number of issues relevant to the Chicano civil rights movement. The film broke the Mexican film industry's monopoly on the Spanish-language theater circuit in the United States. Guiterrez later directed and starred in two other feature films: Amor Chicano es Para Siempre, 1977, and Run, Tecato, Run , 1979.
