Free Film Screening: July 3rd - The Milagro Beanfield War

First Tuesday Social Justice Film Festival

Milagro Beanfield War
July 3rd 7:00pm
Doors open at 6:30pm

The tale of a battle over local water rights and rich developers versus a poor neighborhood, Robert Redford's direction of The Milagro Beanfield War made it one of the most likeable "liberal-tract" film of the 1980s. Starring Ruben Blades, Richard Bradford, James Gammon, John Heard, Carlos Riquelme. In Milagro, a small town in the American Southwest, Ladd Devine plans to build a major new resort development. While activist Ruby Archuleta and lawyer/newspaper editor Charlie Bloom realize that this will result in the eventual displacement of the local Hispanic farmers, they cannot arouse much opposition because of the short term opportunities offered by construction jobs.
