María Candelaria

Emilio Fernández’s penchant for melodramatic excess is balanced by the aesthetic sensitivity of Figueroa’s cinematography in this tragic tale of two young lovers who struggle to overcome the cruelty of fate. The film’s titular protagonist is played by international star Dolores del Río who, after a successful career in Hollywood, returned to Mexico and became one of the most celebrated actors in the nation’s history. Set in 1909 on the eve of the Mexican revolution in Xochimilco, María Candelaria portrays the region’s indigenous population with a contradictory mix of romantic idealism and stereotypical exoticism. 

(Emilio Fernández, 1943, Mexico, 16mm, 90 min.)
