About the “Murals on Screen” film series
This “moving image” summer series aims to showcase the work of Mexican cinematographer Gabriel Figueroa. His world-renowned cinematography earned him the recognition as the “Fourth Muralist” after Diego Rivera, David Alfaro Siqueiros, and José Clemente Orozco. Figueroa, alongside director Emilio Fernández, was responsible for the creation of a visual language and national identity in post-revolutionary Mexico. This film series focuses on his early collaborations with Fernández through the films La Perla and María Candelaria. The series would also include the recent documentary Multiple Perspectives (The Crazy Machine), about Figueroa and his work as a cinematographer.
About Multiple Perspectives (The Crazy MACHINE)
This film is an immersion into some of the most symbolic and iconic images of Mexican cinematography, shot by Gabriel Figueroa, along with commentary by the 40 most important cinematographers worldwide.
