Episode 1 of 1
More from this Series

"Ruben Salazar: Man in the Middle" A Voces Special Presentation, provides insights and answers to one of the most bizarre, disturbing and controversial fatal shootings of the mid-20th century. Part political expose, part narrative deconstruction, part poetic meditation, the film is an independent and thorough investigation of the life and death of Ruben Salazar, a prominent Civil Rights era journalist. As it sheds light on Salazar's slaying by a Sheriff's deputy in 1970, it extricates him from the myths that were constructed to suit political agendas. It also offers a compelling look at an historical period that still resonates today -- an era of repressive law enforcement and of a people's turbulent search for recognition as full-fledged Americans.
