Tía Chuck is the captivating feature length directorial debut by filmmakers Angela and Mark Walley chronicling the life and work of the late artist Chuck Ramirez (1962-2010). A native San Antonian, Ramirez had a successful career in graphic design and advertising before he came unto his own as a conceptual artist in his early thirties. Ramirez was a charismatic and integral part of a flourishing contemporary art scene in San Antonio and saw his HIV+ diagnosis in the early 1990s as motivation to pursue his dream of becoming a successful artist. Primarily employing large-scale photography, Ramirez’s artworks investigate everyday life and are charged with metaphors of cultural identity, sexuality, and mortality. Read More ︎

“Ramirez is convincingly depicted as a preternaturally gifted artist and local star whose tragically short life does not diminish a creative legacy and personality that increasingly, and rightfully, is beginning to feel legendary.”
- Neil Fauerso, Glasstire

“The film portrays Ramirez as a charming, thoughtful, soft-spoken young man who galvanized the creativity of those around him, then grew into an artist just coming into his own when he died suddenly – in a bicycle accident at age 48 – leaving the community around him without its center.”
- Nicholas Frank, The Rivard Report

“A captivating and visually stunning film that reveals and celebrates Ramirez’s private persona. The film successfully humanizes Ramirez, painting him as someone who was not only kind and loving, but also generous to a fault.”
- Marco Aquino, San Antonio Current

"I watched it at home, and I cried. Probably predictably so. But yeah, it's good."
- Christina Rees, Glasstire Top Five
