Block Cinema and the Latin American and Caribbean Studies Program invite you to the Tribute to Gabriel Figueroa Film Series


Set in scenic Cholula, Enamorada tells the story of the city’s conquest by Mexican revolutionary General Reyes (Pedro Armendáriz) and his unlikely romance with Beatriz Peñafiel (María Félix), the fearless daughter of one of the most powerful and wealthy men in town. Loosely based on The Taming of the Shrew, Emilio Fernández’s sweeping historical melodrama is widely considered to be one of the most influential films of the “Golden Age” of Mexican cinema. María Félix’s captivating portrayal of the fiery Beatriz won her an Ariel Award for best actor in 1947, and solidified her status as one of the most iconic stars in the history of Latin American cinema.

(Emilio Fernández, 1946, Mexico, 35mm, 99 min.)
