ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) – “The Lost Pueblo,” a New Mexico film about the legacy of the Pueblo Revolt of 1680, is set to be screened at a Christian film festival in New York.

The movie is scheduled to be shown Saturday as part of the 2016 Great Lakes Christian Film Festival in Buffalo.

The film, set in modern times, recounts the story of one of the pueblos that revolted when the Spanish settlers came to New Mexico. It was inspired by book “Saints of the Pueblos” by Charlie Carillo.

Tomas Sanchez directed the film which was produced last year in New Mexico with 95 percent of the cast and crew from the state. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
