Día de la Revolución in golden age cinema

11am — 3pm

event Details

Join us for the rare opportunity to see two classic Mexican films screened in our auditorium, Los de Abajo (1976) and Cuartelazo (1977), both of which acknowledge Día de la Revolución (marked each year on 20 November).

Learn more about the important history and unprecedented times that shaped modern Mexico. Programmed as part of Frida Kahlo & Diego Rivera: Life and Art in Modern Mexico, these films will deepen your understanding of the vast changes and cultural shifts shaping the Mexico in which painters Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera lived.

These two films are in Spanish. Cuartelazo has English subtitles but there are no subtitles for Los de Abajo – a great opportunity to test your Spanish!

Due to some violence and nudity, these films are restricted to ages 18 years and over. Please note, exhibition entry is not included in your event ticket - click here for exhibition tickets


The exhibition is organised by the Vergel Foundation and MondoMostre in collaboration with the Instituto Nacional de Bellas Artes y Literatura. It is proudly supported by Craigs, AUT, as well as Omnigraphics, with special thanks to the Auckland Art Gallery Foundation.
