|Mexico: The Frozen Revolution
List price: $29.95
Brand: FACETS VIDEO
Documentary filmmaker Raymundo Gleyzer was the founder of the Cine de la Base, a group dedicated to bringing revolutionary films to the people. In 1976, he was abducted and thrown into a concentration camp by Argentina s military dictatorship, then tortured and murdered by a paramilitary group operating within Argentina's military dictatorship. MEXICO: THE FROZEN REVOLUTION, his best-known film, reveals his commitment to social change in Latin America.
Using rare newsreel footage of Pancho Villa and Emiliano Zapata, Gleyzer connected the betrayal of the 1910 Mexican Revolution with the failure of revolution in his own time. At risk to his own safety, he then exposed the PRI--the party that governed Mexico for almost 70 years as corrupt. Also included on this DVD are the shorts films, THE LAND BURNS and IT HAPPENED IN HUALFIN.

|Funny Dirty Little War
Lowest used price: $29.50
Hector Olivera's scathing satire of Argentina's bloody political past is an acerbically funny look at the dirty tricks and terrorism in the wake of President Juan Perón's death in 1974. Federico Luppi (The Devil's Backbone) stars as the liberal city administrator of a provincial town who barricades himself in the city hall when the right wing of the Peronist movement targets him in a smear campaign. The name calling and Keystone Kops shootout begins as a farce but gets darker and deadlier as a fascist goon squad starts executing "subversives" and torturing prisoners, and the local activist youth group turns terrorist guerrilla brigade. Simultaneously horrifying and hilarious, Olivera deftly twists the satirical knife (both sides chant "Viva Perón" while killing their former friends and neighbors) without losing the black humor, the gut-wrenching irony, or the humanity of the victims. --Sean Axmaker

Si Sos Brujo is a heartfelt, inspiring film that could do for Argentine Tango what the Buena Vista Social Club did for the music and musicians of Cuba illuminating an evolving culture, a way of life and the triumph of preserving one of the most intricate musical traditions of the world, following nearly 50 years of relative obscurity. This beautifully shot documentary brings the compelling story of a group of young Argentine musicians racing against time to learn and preserve the elegant and nuanced music played by the legendary Golden Age tango orchestras of Buenos Aires in the 40 s and 50 s.If you are familiar with the names of Pugliese, Triolo and Piazzolla, this film is essential viewing. Yet it has broad appeal, and anyone interested in the creative, musical process will love this film.

Lili's Apron (El Delantal de Lili) – Amazon.com Exclusive
This is the love story of Ramón and his wife Lili, whose life together is dramatically impacted by Argentina's abrupt economic crisis. When Ramón, a chef in a restaurant, is laid off and all efforts to find alternative income fail, their furniture is reposessed, their family life is disrupted, and Ramón must cope with his wife's nervous breakdown. Out of both a sense of responsibility and panic, he devises a desperate, income-generating plan but hides its implications from Lili. Mariano Galperin approaches the poverty and social disintegration among ordinary people with humor and charm, balancing the story on the edge of very dark satire.
With strong images of the dismantled capital accompanied by a powerful soundtrack, Lili's Apron captures a troubled society where unlikely events have become part of everyday life.
"Humor, charm and very dark satire!" -Museum of Modern Art
"Gentle, bracing, darkly sardonic." -Boston Globe
Lili's Apron is an official selection of the prestigious, award-winning Global Lens Collection presented by the Global Film Initiative. In Spanish with English subtitles.
