CineFestival Encore Screening: Children of Giant

Returning to the director's chair after six years, Hector Galán transports audiences back into cinematic history with a documentary about the making of the Academy Award-winning film Giant, which was shot in Marfa, Texas during the summer of 1955. Through archive footage and interviews with authors, journalists and the like, Galán conveys the story effectively with a particular focus on how Giant became a social-issue hot button during that time. The doc is especially interesting when Galán turns the camera on the Mexican-American residents, who were cast as extras in the film as kids. Having recently hosted the film's world premiere (to a sold-out crowd) at the 37th annual CineFestival, the Guadalupe presents an encore screening of Children of Giant in collaboration with Texas Public Radio.
