Mr. Mayor



In 2005 A.J. Cervantes Jr. approached Michael about creating a video about the life of his long-deceased father, Alfonso J. Cervantes – Mayor of St. Louis in the 60’s and 70’s. A.J. had been carrying numerous boxes containing thousands of stills, clippings, old audio and film clips. This seemingly modest project turned into a two-year effort that resulted in a feature length documentary that premiered at the St. Louis Int’l Film festival in the fall of 2007 and aired on the local PBS station in 2008.

Following is an excerpt from the 90-minute film “Mr. Mayor – The Life and Times of Alfonso J. Cervantes”.
