ROBERT RODRIGUEZ FILM SERIES: EL MARIACHI
Part of the Frida Kahlo: Her Photos Celebration
WED MAR 7 / 8 PM
Robert Rodriguez’s directorial debut, El Mariachi tells the story of a traveling mariachi who just wants to play his guitar and carry on the family tradition. Unfortunately, the town he tries to find work in has another visitor...a killer who carries his guns in a guitar case. The drug lord and his henchmen mistake El Mariachi for the killer, Azul, and chase him around town trying to kill him and get his guitar case.
