The Man Who Shot the Devil
“The Man Who Shot the Devil” is a short movie that was filmed in Pala in the 1950s. It tells the story of Corpus Christi, and the tradition of the priest and the community banishing the devil from the village.
Many Pala tribal and community members were used as extras in the film. In honor of this year’s Corpus Christi celebration on June 7, 2020, we have made the film available for viewing on the Pala Band of Mission Indians’ YouTube channel.
