Galan will be in attendance for a post-screening Q&A about the film. In 1955, Elizabeth Taylor, Rock Hudson, James Dean and a massive crew descended on the Texas town of Marfa to begin production on Giant. Now, 60 years later, “Children of Giant” explores the film’s still timely examination of racial prejudice. This film will air as part of the Voces series on PBS stations nationwide.
