Circa 1901, a mistranslation by a Texan official leads to a case of fatal miscommunication, forcing Gregorio Cortez (Edward James Olmos) to run for his life from the pursuing Texas Rangers.
The Ballad of Gregorio Cortez was restored in 2016 by the Academy Film Archive. This project is supported in part by an award from the National Endowment for the Arts.
