About the Event

SWAMP Presents
TEJANO
Directed by David Blue Garcia.
Starring Patrick Mackie, Roland Uribe, Mayra Leal

Filmmaker David Blue Garcia will participate in a Q&A along with cast and crew following the screening. 

When his Grandfather suddenly becomes ill, Javi, a South Texas farmhand resorts to the extreme: he turns to a Mexican cartel to make some quick cash. But when the cartel breaks his arm and forces him to smuggle a cast made of cocaine across the Mexican border, Javi learns how far he will go for family.

Filmed on location in the Rio Grande Valley on the Texas-Mexico border, TEJANO is an exhilarating, knuckle-whitening movie that captures the haunting beauty of the landscape and bilingual culture of the border.

TEJANO was made in Texas, by Texans, for everyone.
