The Espacio La Granja space of the State Public Library (House of Culture) of Santa Cruz continues with the series dedicated to the filmmaker John Ford with the screening of "Tobacco Road" on Thursday the 5th at 7pm.

In the fields of Augusta, Georgia, the cotton crop has been abandoned and farmers have moved to the city. But Jeeter Lester, a ruined heir of an extensive property, which had previously been prosperous, rejects the idea of leaving his farm. He considers working in factories to be a disgrace, he is a traditional man living off the land and he wants to avoid eviction at all costs so he steals and tries to live by his wits. He lives with his wife, grandmother and their two sons, who want to revive their crop, with the hope of getting a loan to buy seeds.
