THE STORM THAT SWEPT MEXICO
A fascinating story of the Mexican Revolution of 1910, its causes and its
legacy. Fueled by the Mexican people's growing dissatisfaction with an elitist ruling regime, the revolution was led by two of the most intriguing and mythic figures in 20th century history - Emiliano Zapata and Francisco "Pancho" Villa. At stake was Mexico's ability to claim its own natural resources, establish long-term democracy and re-define its identity. More than ten years in the making the film offers a thorough exploration of the beliefs and conditions that led to the revolution, influenced the course of the conflict, and determined its long term consequences in Mexico, the USA and beyond.
