Silent with new recorded score by PostClassical Ensemble; tickets $5!

Early in his career, the Austrian-born future Oscar® winner Fred Zinnemann (A MAN FOR ALL SEASONS, FROM HERE TO ETERNITY) co-directed this politically and emotionally searing drama with Emilio Gómez Muriel. In this vivid, documentary-like dramatization of the daily grind of men struggling to make a living by fishing in the Gulf of Mexico (mostly played by real-life fishermen), one worker’s terrible loss instigates a political awakening among his fellow laborers. A singular coming together of talents, the film, commissioned by a progressive Mexican government, was co-written and gorgeously shot by legendary photographer Paul Strand. The score by Silvestre Revueltas is considered a classic of film music. This screening features a recorded score by DC's own PostClassical Ensemble (PCE), in connection with the release of the brand-new DVD from Naxos, copies of which will be available for purchase. DIR/SCR Emilio Gómez Muriel, Fred Zinnemann; SCR Henwar Rodakiewicz, Paul Strand, Agustín Velázquez Chávez; PROD Carlos Chávez. Mexico, 1936, b&w, 65 min, digital presentation.
