The DMA will present a film series celebrating the Golden Age of Mexican Cinema from the 1930s through the 1950s. The series will start on May 14 with director and film historian Sonia Fritz discussing the era of filmmaking and how these beloved films address issues of gender and identity. Following the talk at 3:30 pm, the first film in the series, Distinto Amanecer (Another Dawn), will be shown in the Museum’s Horchow Auditorium. Considered one of the best examples of Mexican film noir, the film takes place during a single night in which old friends Ignacio, Julieta, and Octavio are reunited after many years apart.
