The Cycle: Epocas, begins this Saturday, February 13, at 6:00 p.m. in the Cinema at Casa Haas. This cycle will transport us to the history of Mexican cinema, recalling some of its most outstanding films.

The first to be screened is ¡Vámonos con Pancho Villa! (1936), directed by Fernando de Fuentes, based on the homonymous novel by the writer Rafael F. Muñoz and adapted by Xavier Villaurrutia; which would be part of the trilogy of works set during the Mexican Revolution. In 1994, Somos Magazine placed it at number one of the “100 best Mexican films of all time.”

The movie “Let’s go with Pancho Villa!” begins in the town of San Pablo, where six friends decide to join Pancho Villa’s (Domingo Soler) Northern Division. This group of friends call themselves “Lions of Saint Paul” and pledge allegiance to their leader, representing a leader of the people and behaving like a common and generous man. The spirit of the “Lions of San Pablo” drastically changes when Villa’s army suffers several defeats and they realize that the life of a soldier in the revolution is more one of suffering than of honor.

One of the masterpieces of national cinematography, it is considered the beginning of the golden age of Mexican cinema. Its premiere was on December 31, 1936 and it was only on the bill for a week, from there it remained canned until the sixties, when it was finally recognized as a great film that has become a classic of Mexican cinema.

The film is screened in its original language, Spanish. Free entry with limited space and mandatory use of the mask throughout the event.
