SAN ANTONIO, Texas – William Molina, an award-winning Texas filmmaker, has produced a sequel to his widely watched Truth Be Tolled documentary series on the Trans-Texas Corridor. It debuts Oct. 30 in San Antonio.

The sequel focuses on the Texas Department of Transportation’s (TxDOT) “illegal lobbying and ad campaign that advocated toll roads and the Trans Texas Corridor on the taxpayer dime,” said Terri Hall, who heads the San Antonio Toll Party and Texans Uniting for Reform and Freedom (TURF). The two groups are in the forefront of the battle against the proposed TTC supertollway and the tolling of freeways.

These groups, which support candidates for public office and file lawsuits to challenge official misdeeds, are especially concerned that gas-tax revenue is not being properly set aside for freeway maintenance and repairs, fueling concerns that politicians will seek to convert Texas freeways into tollways, even as the TTC branch of the NAFTA Superhighway network is envisioned to be the largest mega-tollway ever built.

“TxDOT is still actively engaged in lobbying despite the taxpayers’ lawsuit [through TURF] to halt such activities,” Hall added.

The new film will debut Thursday, Oct. 30, at the Palladium Theater, 17910 West Interstate 10 in San Antonio. Moviegoers can meet the cast and crew at 6 p.m. (central time), with the screening to begin at 7 p.m.

Molina’s previous edition of Truth Be Tolled, “won the top award in the documentary category at the Houston Film Festival in April 2006. Molina is an Emmy-nominated filmmaker and has done work for the History Channel and the Discovery Channel as well as for Hollywood features,” Hall noted in a news release.
