Tonight’s Screening: “Bless Me Ultima”

Carl “Devil in a Blue Dress” Franklin’s film is based on a Rudolph Anaya’s groundbreaking Chicano autobiographical novel.

“Bless Me, Ultima” was shot in New Mexico, is set during World War II and stars Miriam Colon as the title character, “protector” of a young boy menaced by both the times and the supernatural.

The cast is peopled with lesser known character actors, so this is very much an unknown quantity, at least to me. Fingers crossed, as always.
