Thursday, May 16

(1960, Mexico, 91m, Spanish with English subtitles) dir Roberto Gavaldón w/ Ignacio López Tarso, Pina Pellicer, Enrique Lucero. Macario is a woodcutter so tired of sacrificing his meager portions that he goes on a hunger strike, announcing he will never eat again until he can devour a roast turkey all by himself. His wife, a laundress, steals a fowl to fulfill this wish, but when Macario sits down to enjoy his feast, he is interrupted by three figures––the Devil, God, and Death. Roberto Gavaldón’s film is a haunting fairy tale peppered with sharp observations about inequality.

Restored by The Film Foundation’s World Cinema Project and Fundación Televisa at L’Immagine Ritrovata in collaboration with Filmoteca UNAM and in association with Televisa S. de R.L. de C.V. Funding provided by the Golden Globe Foundation. Special thanks to Guillermo del Toro.
