Noir Fest 3: SUN, JAN 12 | TUE, JAN 14 2020
35mm

Illegal Mexican migrant workers paying coyotes for the chance to cross the border and work for unethical American rancher Owen Parkson (Howard Da Silva) are ambushed and killed upon return to Mexico by soulless bandits. To stop the vicious cycle of exploitation and murder, Mexican federal agent Pablo Rodriguez (Ricardo Montalban) is assigned to infiltrate a group of “braceros” in cooperation with American federal agent Jack Bearnes (George Murphy). Risking their lives to uphold the laws of their respective countries, the success of the operation depends on Pablo and Jack’s ability to outsmart the predators without becoming the prey.
