Mexico: The Frozen Revolution (Raymundo Gleyzer 1973)

On the 40th anniversary of his assassination by the Argentine military junta, we screen Raymundo Gleyzer’s seminal documentary on the betrayal of the 1910 revolution, incorporating rare newsreel footage of Mexican revolutionaries, Villa and Zapata, not as historical decoration but as part of a dialectic that culminates in the massacre of some 400 students in one day during the 1968 Mexican Olympics.
