The film being presented and discussed is "The Three Burials of Melquiades Estrada." The director and star is Tommy Lee Jones, who plays Pete Perkins, a hard-working small cattle operator, that hires Melquiades Estrada, an illegal Mexican immigrant to work as a cowboy. Taking place in a small border town of poverty that proves to be a hard land for men and a heartbreaking one for women, Pete takes justice into his own hands after a confrontation with a Border Patrol agent and the local sheriff.

Beverly Vogeley and Cathy Adamescue will serve as discussion facilitators. Both are longtime members of LLI and members of the LLI Steering Committee. ​

Hosted by the Lifelong Learning Institute at COTC
