THE THREE BURIALS OF MELQUIADES ESTRADA

Director's Statement
The Three Burials of Melquiades Estrada is a study of the emotional, psychological, spiritual, and social implications of having an international border running through the middle of a culture.

We have used the narrative form of a journey wherein circumstances conspire to compel a hero to leave a mundane place and travel through various other places; some of them dangerous or life-threatening, some of them humorous, some of them mysterious, all of them arduous, until ultimately, he arrives at a good place where he knows who he is and how to gracefully relate to the world around him. It's a form that's been used for thousands of years, and it serves us well in this study of social contrasts and the mechanics of faith.

Some visual influences have been the Kabuki Theatre, the art of Donald Judd and Dan Flavin, and the films of Akira Kurosawa, Sam Peckinpah, and Jean-Luc Godard. - Tommy Lee Jones
