"La Onda Chicana" (1976) 20 minutes.
Produced during the U. S. Bi-Centennial and filmed in Port Lavaca, Texas. La Onda Chicana has been referred to as a mini Chicano Woodstock. Four Chicano bands perform, Little Joe y La Familia, Los Chachos, Snowball and company with Laura Canales, and Johnny Elezondo y La Fabrica.

"Run Tecato Run" (1979) 86 minutes. Black and white.
Filmed in Texas and California, Run Tecato Run depicts a junkie's efforts to get off heroin in order to reclaim and raise his daughter. Based on true incidents, the film explores the connections between the Vietnam War, drug addiction, and crime, juxtaposing these against Mexican-American family, culture, and spirituality. Run Tecato Run is the last of three low-budget social problem films restored by the UCLA Film and Television Archive in collaboration with the CSRC through its Chicano Cinema Recovery Project. Original music by Esteban "Steve" Jordan.

Rio Jordan is comprised of the sons of Esteban Jordan, Esteban Jordan III and Ricardo Jordan.
