Que Viva Mexico! (Sergei Eisenstein/Mexico/Russia/1931)
The KINO restoration of a lost masterpiece of cinema
A blend of the ethnographic, the political, the scenic and the surreal, Qué Viva México! is nothing short of brilliant; a highly stylized (silent with limited subtitles) documentary on the people and volatile social climate of Mexico. It remains superior to the legion of films it strongly influenced: Orson Welles’ It’s All True, Alejandro Jodorowsky’s El Topo and the works of Sergio Leone. With sequences devoted to the Eden-like land of Tehuantepec, the savage majesty of the bullfight, the struggles of the noble peasant and the hypnotic imagery of the Day of the Dead, Qué Viva México! is a vivid tapestry of Mexican life which, thanks to Grigory Alexandrov and Nikita Orlov’s careful restoration, takes its rightful place alongside Eisenstein’s other legendary works.
DJ Maximus 3000 will score the film live. “It’s a new spin on the art of DJing. I’m not playing to the audience; I’m creating the soundtrack to the film, which will in turn affect the audience,” he says.
DJ Maximus 3000 Adds ” This Event will be an interesting take on MBC’s monthly series as they usually have classical and live instrumentalists. This will be a Hats off to The Petshop Boys 2004 Performance in Trafalgar square to Eisenstein’s cinema classic “Battleship Potemkin”. This Performance will feature a collection of ethereal landscapes and haunting downtempo electronic beats, with an equal mix of preselected Pieces and original experimental Productions from My Studio work, Mixed live DJ Style.”
The film will be followed by the closing night reception for the MBC LEO MATIZ Frida Kahlo exhibition. $12 or $10 MBC Members / Students / Seniors
