Duration: 2 Hours

 Started during the Great Depression by the Russian avant-garde filmmaker Sergei Eisenstein, Que Viva Mexico! was meant to be a filmic journey from Mexico's indigenous past, through colonial rule to the Mexican Revolution.  Muralists Rivera, Orozco and Siqueros initially served as guides for Eisenstein and his crew.  However, financial and logistical issues forced Eisenstein to abandon the film during production.  In 1970, Eisenstein's longtime editor and collaborator constructed the film following Eisenstein's original notes and storyboards.  In Spanish with English subtitles.  At 1 pm in the auditorium.
