EISENSTEIN IN MEXICO: THE ETERNAL CIRCLE (1996) [Feature]

Mexico (MIFF 1998 , Documentaries - Eisenstein)
Director: Alejandra Islas

Eisenstein in Mexico: The Eternal Circle documents one of the least known, yet perhaps most influential, periods in the life of master filmmaker, Sergei Eisenstein. During his brief visit to Mexico, he produced over 200,000 feet of film in an attempt to capture the spiritual, geographical and cultural essence ol the country and its' people. Que Viva Mexico!, defamed in Russia by Soviet censors became known as the great unfinished work which would haunt Eisenstein for the rest of his life.
