This documentary 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.

This week, Arts In Context Shorts takes you to the drive-in movie theater. Located on the sprawling tarmac of the old Austin airport is the Blue Starlite Drive-in. A few nights a week, up to fifty cars and a handful of walk-in moviegoers gradually fill the lot. While some people drop tailgates and inflate air mattresses in truck beds, others arrange sofa cushions in hatchbacks or unfold lawn chairs around coolers. As the sun sets behind the city skyline and the stars come out, people tune their radios into the theater’s own station attach one of many vintage speakers and settle in for the movie. In this short, we see why the Blue Starlite has become a worthy member of Austin’s unique collection of independent cinemas.
