Que Viva Mexico

Back in 1931 Russian movie master Sergei Eisenstein set out to explore the history and culture of Mexico. In one of the great tragedies of the film world, the film was never completed. In 1979, however, assistant director Grigoi Alexandrov recreated what he could from the finished film footage. The result is a glorious, fragmentary piece of beauty, not unlike the ruins of Chichen Itza. In Russian with English subtitles. 85 minutes
