Mexican Maladies: Arturo Ripstein from First to Last

Jan 25 2018 — Jan 28 2018
Arturo Ripstein is one of the Mexico’s most subversive and original directors.

He has taken inspiration from filmmakers such as Luis Buñuel, and also influenced a whole further generation, including Alex Cox, director of the 1986 cult classic Sid and Nancy. Now in his fifth decade of filmmaking, Ripstein transforms popular genres into fearless attacks on prejudice and complacency in Mexican society. This two-part program presents his very first film (in a new digital restoration) and his most recent work from 2015.
