Deputized is a feature length documentary film that examines a hate
crime that resulted in the murder of Ecuadorian immigrant Marcelo
Lucero. Filmed over three years, the film explores the local and
national forces that came together to create an atmosphere of
anti-immigrant hatred. The film investigates this story from multiple
perspectives, exploring the role of the police who mishandled cases, the
school that ignored tensions, the press that sensationalized the issue,
the politicians who use the issue to get elected and the justice system
that needed a scapegoat. Interviews with local politicians, clergy,
immigrants, parents and the main perpetrator try to explain how this
very American tragedy could happen.
