Editorial Reviews

Documentary filmmaker Raymundo Gleyzer was the founder of the Cine de la Base, a group dedicated to bringing revolutionary films to the people. In 1976, he was abducted and thrown into a concentration camp by Argentina s military dictatorship, then tortured and murdered by a paramilitary group operating within Argentina's military dictatorship. MEXICO: THE FROZEN REVOLUTION, his best-known film, reveals his commitment to social change in Latin America.
Using rare newsreel footage of Pancho Villa and Emiliano Zapata, Gleyzer connected the betrayal of the 1910 Mexican Revolution with the failure of revolution in his own time. At risk to his own safety, he then exposed the PRI--the party that governed Mexico for almost 70 years as corrupt. Also included on this DVD are the shorts films, THE LAND BURNS and IT HAPPENED IN HUALFIN.

4.0 out of 5 stars Remarkable Documentary September 20, 2008
Verified Purchase
An iconic documentary made in 1970 by the courageous Raymundo Gleyzer, dubbed Che Guevara with a camera by his admirers, who was murdered by the Argentinean dictatorship six years later. It's a wonderful, committed overview of Mexico's struggle for emancipation. It features wonderful historic footage of two popular heroes, Pancho Villa and Emilino Zapata, and interviews with witnesses to some of the salient and defining moments in modern Mexican history. The quality of the digital transfer is poor, but it remains one of the most remarkable documentaries ever made.
