A reception will be hosted at 6:00 pm before the film screening. A question-and-answer session with film director William E. Millet and film consultant Félix Diaz Almaráz will follow the showing.
“Texas Before the Alamo” is about the true founders of modern Texas: the Spanish soldiers and priests who established missions, presidios, ranchos, and villas to guard against French intrusion into Spain’s northern province. 120 minutes. English.
