September 4, 5, 11, 12, 18, 19, 25
East Building Concourse, Auditorium
In a memorable year for Mexico—2010 marks both the bicentennial of independence from Spain and the 100th anniversary of the start of the Mexican Revolution—it’s also becoming abundantly clear that fresh directorial talents are invigorating the burgeoning pool of distinctive cinema known as Nuevo Cine Mexicano, one of the world’s most dynamic national cinema movements. This series includes the work of eight filmmakers. Presented in association with the Mexican Cultural Institute and the Embassy of Mexico. The Gallery wishes to thank Carlos Gutiérrez.”
