JustUs (film trailer)
JustUs is the story of a family in the Española Valley of New Mexico ministering to their community during an epidemic of heroin addiction and political corruption. This location is the homeland of a variety of Indigenous tribes. In 1598 Spanish Conquistadores attempted to colonize this area. The Pueblo rebellion of 1680 was a reaction to enslavement that resonates with historical traumas that even remain today. Most of the people here are bi-racial. The Spanish language is a dominant cultural influence. Though the land is enchanting, poverty is endemic and the State of New Mexico is ranked 49th in educational achievement. Job training facilities and job opportunities are nearly nonexistent with the distribution of heroin and methamphetamine being the primary source of income. Produced by Paul Steinbroner and David Okimoto and directed by Paul Steinbroner of Touchpoint Productions, firstname.lastname@example.org at (541) 941-5317 to schedule a preview.
