El General


As we approach 2010, historians like to point to two crucial dates of Mexico's history: 1810, when
Mexico waged its war of Independence from Spain; and 1910, when the Mexican Revolution erupted, leading to the overthrow of a thirty-year dictatorship. As if frozen in time, we hear the same political cry from nearly a century ago, “Sufragio Efectivo” Universal Suffrage – not only the right to vote, but for that vote to be counted. In 1910, the Revolutionaries sought to redistribute land and wealth. Today the minimum wage is approximately 4.50 USD per day, while, according to Forbes, Mexico has the honor of sporting some of the world's wealthiest people.


As you use our Online Archives, please understand that the information presented from Festivals, Labs, and other activities is taken directly from official publications from each year. While this information is limited and doesn't necessarily represent the full list of participants (e.g. actors and crew), it is the list given to us by the main film/play/project contact at the time, based on the space restrictions of our publications. Each entry in the Online Archives is meant as a historical record of a particular film, play, or project at the time of its involvement with Sundance Institute. For this reason, we can only amend an entry if a name is misspelled, or if the entry does not correctly reflect the original publication.
