TUCSON (KVOA) - The documentary "915: Hunting Hispanics", which examines the 2019 El Paso Walmart mass shooting will be featured in Tucson Friday.
Galaxy Theaters will show the film for a week.
Forty-six people were shot during the El Paso Walmart mass shooting, 23 of the victims, mostly Hispanics, died from their injuries.
"This shooting was the ultimate hate crime towards Mexican people," said the film director Charlie Minn, who says there is a Tucson connection to some of the victims.
"On August 3, 2019, a racist killer from Dallas drove 10 hours to El Paso to murder as many Mexican people as possible," Minn said.
El Paso, Texas is home to around a million people, a large majority of Hispanic origin, and sits on the border with Ciudad, Juarez, Mexico (population around 1.5 million).
"I encourage every Tucsonan to come out and watch this film to start a very serious dialogue on why Hispanics continue to be targeted," said Minn.
There will be a free screening tonight at the Galaxy Theater at 6:30. Email ASAP firstname.lastname@example.org, 15 people will be randomly selected for tonight.
