Please, Don't Bury Me Alive! (17th Cine Las Americas Film Festival)
USA, Crime/Drama, 1976
81 min, 16mm, Color

Alejandro Hernández has just buried his brother, who died in Vietnam. Caught between inadequate education and scant job opportunities, Alejandro drifts into a life of crime, mostly small theft, whereupon an undercover police officer sets him up for a heroin deal. Alejandro then faces a biased judicial system, receiving a ten year sentence, while another character, the son of a wealthy businessman, receives probation for a similar offence. By the end of the film, Alejandro has become aware of the social inequities facing him, while also realizing that he has made bad choices that do not look ahead to the future of his own community.
