      VIP Reception - The Last Brown Beret

      Based on the popular play, “The Last Angry Brown Hat”, Producer Del Zamora (True Blood, RoboCop, Born in East LA, RepoMan), tells this powerful story of four Ex-Brown Berets, who gather for the funeral of a fifth Brown Beret.  It has been many years since these four have seen each other, a life time since they challenged thousands of students to “Blow Out” of East Los Angeles High Schools and a lot of water has passed under the bridge since they tried to take over Catalina Island.  Their effort in the Chicano Moratorium March and rally against the Vietnam War in 1970 is now just an eerie shadow. A shadow turned into a red-hot riot fueled by the aggression of L.A. County Sheriffs and the LAPD.  This same riot witnessed the controversial killing of bi-lingual Chicano L.A. Times journalist Ruben Salazar at the hands of rogue Los Angeles County sheriffs.Original cast members will be on hand for the red-carpet opening here in Sacramento. VIP’s and Sponsors will gather for a Star-Studded reception prior to the screening of this powerful, poignant, timely story of a time when the “movimento” was at its peak. A question and answer period will follow the screening.Come join us as we raise money to ensure this movie reaches its goal of being in every school, college and library enabling our young activists to discover the power behind organizing and standing for a cause.Proceeds will also go towards continuing Chicano Arts in Sacramento including keeping Arts sustainable in its efforts to show the power of social justice theater.
