ABOUT THE FILM-

In the early morning hours of January 28, 1918, in the border town of Porvenir, Texas, a group of 15 fathers, uncles, brothers and sons were taken from their homes and executed; soon after, their families fled.  Who were the killers?  Why did they carry out such a horrific act?  Porvenir, Texas explores this tragic story, asks what led to the events of that fateful night and reveals the tensions that still remain along the border a century later.
