Los Pastores: The Shepherd’s Play is a bilingual half-hour documentary that takes place in the Rio Grande Valley of New Mexico and Colorado. Loren Stephens served as executive producer of the film that explores the significance of this Catholic liturgical drama upon the lives of the communities that participate in recreating this Christmas story with antecedents in medieval Spain. The play, performed by volunteers under the direction of Taos resident and historian, Arcenio Cordova, and teacher and actor, Larry Torres, was filmed in the eighteenth century San Jose de Gracias Church on the High Road between Santa Fe and Taos. The film was shown on select PBS stations throughout the country and was included in the Smithsonian Hispanic Heritage Festival as well as the Folk Art Museum of Los Angeles. “Los Pastores” impresses the viewer with the value of preserving traditions as a way of keeping communities alive and vibrant. This film is available through Cinema Guild at www.cinemaguild.com and was produced under the One Step Productions’ banner.
