They Called Me King Tiger / Me llamaban King Tiger

Dir. Ángel Estrada Soto

(Mexico, 2017, 80 min.)

In June of 1967, the court of Tierra Amarilla, New Mexico, was assaulted by armed men under the command of Chicano leader, Reies López Tijerina. The outcome of such bold action, was the largest manhunt in the recent history of the United States. Tijerina managed to survive prison, a psychiatric hospital, and several assassination attempts. The Chicano movement faded away, and everyone thought the same of Tijerina. People speak of him as a saint, an illuminated man, a man looking for a fair cause through violence. They called him King Tiger.

El resultado de tan audaz acción, fue la mayor cacería humana en la historia reciente de los Estados Unidos. Tijerina logró sobrevivir a la cárcel, un hospital psiquiátrico, y varios intentos de asesinato. El movimiento chicano se desvaneció, y todo el mundo pensaba lo mismo de Tijerina. La gente habla de él como un santo, un hombre iluminado, un hombre que usaba la violencia en busca de una causa justa. Lo llamaban King Tiger.
