This extraordinary omnibus of ten short films by Mexico’s top talents marks the 100 year anniversary of the Mexican Revolution of 1910, when, amid rampant political and social unrest, revolutionaries rose up against the government. “From the quiet to the fierce, the poignant to the political, Revolución casts a colorful and caustic eye on today’s Mexico, a country bursting with social contradictions and bold cinematic talent. As each director presents their individual take on their homeland, our appreciation for the country deepens, even while the film brings into question rarely examined issues of long-standing traditions and blind patriarchy. Revolución captures the complex character of contemporary Mexico.” (LA Film Festival) (2009, 105 min, digital)
