Featuring text from novelist Carlos Fuentes and ancient Aztec and Mayan poetry, Méxicodepicts the history and present-day lives of the people of that country. Viewers travel back 3,000 years to witness the advanced civilizations that comprise the roots of Mexican culture. The effects of the violent contact with Spanish explorers in the 1700s, as depicted in this film by the murals of Diego Rivera and other Mexican artists, brought about a melding of cultures that shapes the current Mexican society. Through stunning visuals and poetic narration, México brings to the large screen a revealing portrait of the rich history and traditions of this land.
