El General

1:21:12Expires: 09/02/14

Filmmaker Natalia Almada brings to life audio recordings she inherited about her great-grandfather, General Plutarco Elías Calles, a revolutionary general who became president of Mexico in 1924 but is remembered today as a dictator who was exiled in 1936. The film moves between memories of a woman grappling with history’s portrait of her father and the weight of his legacy on the country today.
