Raul Julia Discusses His Life and Career.
Actor Raul Julia. His films include "Kiss of the Spider Woman," "Moon Over Parador," "Tango Bar" and the recent "Tequila Sunrise." His latest film, "Romero," is based on the life, and assassination, of the Salvadoran Archbishop Oscar Romero. The film follows Romero's life as a once-silent priest, praised by the ruling government for his restraint, who is suddenly awakened by a string of senseless murders as right-wing death squads hunt out "communists." Romero becomes a champion of Salvador's poor and an embarrassment to the government and is later murdered while saying mass.
