The Head of Joaquin Murrieta: Nov 10, 2015

Film: The Head of Joaquin Murrieta
John J. Valadez, Peabody Award Winning Filmmaker

Tue. Nov. 10, 11:15-12:35pm
Room V-101, City College

For over a decade filmmaker John J. Valadez searched for the remains of Joaquin Murrieta, a legendary Mexican outlaw who blazed a trail of revenge and rebellion following the theft of his land, and the rape and murder of his wife. The Head of Joaquin Murrieta (a 30- minute film) is an irreverent, entertaining and often disturbing tale that uses both fiction and documentary story telling devices to tear open a painful and long ignored history: the lynching of Mexican Americans in the Southwest.
