Russian avant-garde director Sergei Eisenstein (Battleship Potemkin, 1925) met Mexican muralist Diego Rivera in Russia in the late 1920s, and became infatuated with Mexico's ancient culture and the Mexican Revolution. With funding from an American socialist, he traveled with two collaborators to Mexico to make a history of the nation. They shot 30-50 hours of film but the project was abandoned when they ran out of money. Three decades after his death, his collaborators finished it as they thought he had intended it. (In Russian, English subtitles, 90 minutes)
