"Mexican cinema would be hard to imagine without Roberto Gavaldón...His films are, perhaps, at the top of the list for fresh appreciation."—New York Sun

Nominated for the Oscar for Best Foreign Language Film, Macario is a landmark film by one of the key filmmakers of Mexican cinema's golden age. After vowing to fast until he can have a whole turkey to feast on, Macario, a poor woodsman, heads off into the woods after finally obtaining the bird he has been longing for. Once he gets to the forest he encounters God, Satan, and Death, each offering a deal for Macario's meal, and the film turns into a startling, angry satire. Based on a story that the enigmatic writer B. Traven (The Treasure of the Sierra Madre) adapted from the Brothers Grimm and gorgeously photographed by the legendary Gabriel Figueroa, the film is one of the purest and most audacious examples of "magical realism" ever made. (91 mins., 35mm)
