El general

"In 1910 a revolution erupted in Mexico, among its rallying cries "the right to vote." Nearly a century later "Sufragio Efectivo" is heard again as thousands take to the streets. Through the legacy that filmmaker Natalia Almada inherited as the great-granddaughter of Mexican president Plutarco Elias Calles (1924-1928), one of Mexico's most controversial revolutionary figures accused of having been a "Dictator", "Iron Man" and "Nun-Burner", yet also acclaimed for having been the "father of modern Mexico," El General is a portrait of a family and a country under the shadow of the past."--Altamura Films website.

  • "Filmmaker Natalia Almada's great-grandfather Plutarco Elias Calles served as a general in the Mexican Revolution and became the president of Mexico in 1924. Today, he is remembered as a dictator who ruled through puppet presidents until his exile in 1936. Inspired by audio recordings Almada inherited from her grandmother about her great-grandfather, the film presents a complex and visually arresting portrait of a family and country living under the shadows of the past."
