Mélos mexicains (1944-1959)

March 11th - April 1st, 2023

Inspired by North American cinema, we look at a forgotten body of work, buried in our archives: Mexican melodramas, made in the 1940s and 1950s. With it's many stars (especially Maria Felix), Mexico has established a real system, driven by a very cinematic vibe : the excess of feelings. The rarity of those gems is the reason why most of them will be presented in french.

Programmed with the collaboration of Marie-Laure Poiré Bleau.
