This Event Has Ended


They Called Me Tiger King (Dir. Ángel Estrada Soto) (90 mins.)

In June of 1967, the court of Tierra Amarilla, New Mexico, was assaulted by armed men under the command of Chicano leader Reies López Tijerina. The outcome of such bold action was the largest manhunt in the recent history of the United States. This documentary uncovers the story of the assault and aftermath, exploring whether violence can be used to create fairness, and discovering more about the life of a man who is spoken of as a saint.
