About the movie: Sergei Eisenstein shot ¡Que viva México! In Mexico in 1931 when the revolution aspired to become an institution, and at the height of the Great Depression. He wanted to create a film symphony about Mexico’s people, history, and culture. “Many film-historians are convinced that ¡Que viva México! is one of Eisenstein's greatest films. [It] stood at the crossroads of Eisenstein’s artistic development and at a crucial point in the evolution of the art of the cinema.”(www. archive.org)
