The Mexican Revolution was the first major revolution to be filmed. The Storm that Swept Mexico incorporates photographs and motion pictures from these earliest days of cinema, many of which have never before been seen outside of Mexico.
Ten years in the making by Bay Area filmmakers Ray Telles and Kenn Rabin, The Storm that Swept Mexico is a powerful exploration of one of the most fascinating eras in modern history.
This exclusive new documentary The Storm that Swept Mexico, which tells the epic story of the Mexican revolution of 1910, the first major political and social revolution of the 20th century, will screen only one night in the Bay Area and will be followed by a conversation with the filmmakers.
This rare footage will be on the big screen Thursday, March 31, 7:00pM at 1118 Fourth Street, San Rafael. Call 415.454.1222 for more information. This is a California Film Institute screening.
