The Three Burials of Melquiades Estrada

The Three Burials of Melquiades Estrada

“Incisive yet supple, wrenching yet deeply pleasurable.” – Kevin Thomas, Los Angeles Times

Director, Tommy Lee Jones
When Melquiades Estrada is accidentally murdered by US Border Patrol officer Mike Norton (Barry Pepper), Estrada’s best friend Pete Perkins (Tommy Lee Jones) aims to fulfill his promise to bury his friend in his hometown in Mexico. Perkins kidnaps Norton, forces the officer to dig up the body, and heads south on horseback with Norton and the body in tow. “For taking your life, I’m sorry!” Also stars January Jones.

About Film Club:

A new series every six months, we’ll be focusing on a particular outstanding director, genre, or artist. On the 3rd Tuesday of each month, we’ll show a film followed by a lively, participatory discussion. Curators Bill and Stella Pence, founders of the Telluride Film Festival in Colorado and the Music Hall’s Telluride by the Sea Film Festival, have chosen Great Westerns for July through December 2018 and director/playwright/performer Kent Stephens will be our host and guide.

A must for all Telluride lovers, film discussion buffs, and all-around cinephiles!
