In conjunction with San Diego Museum of Art's special exhibition "Mexican Modern Painting from the Andrés Blaisten Collection", Project Curator for American Art Amy Galpin will speak about some of the themes of the exhibition and the era now known as the Golden Age of Mexican Cinema, during which this film was made.
"Flor Silvestre" (1943), which marked the return of Dolores del Rio to the big screen, explores the expressive nature of the Mexican landscape, as well as the revolution that shaped modern Mexico. Estimated running time is 94 minutes.
The film screening will take place on January 6, 2012 at the San Diego Museum of Art. There will be a pre-film lecture at 7:00 PM and the movie will begin at 8:00 PM. Google Map.
