3 Films by Fernando de Fuentes.
Described as "the Mexican John Ford" (The New York Times), Fernando de Fuentes was by far the most talented filmmaker of early Mexican sound cinema. This tragic trilogy set during the Mexican Revolution was possibly his greatest achievement.

Prisoner 13 (1933, 76 mins.) concerns a son who pays for his father's faults and a desperate mother who tries at all costs to save her son's life.

El Compadre Mendoza (1933, 85 mins.) examines the corrupted ideals of the Revolution by way of an opportunistic landowner, who must choose between remaining loyal to a general in Zapata's army (and facing financial ruin) or saving his own skin.

Lastly, Fuentes' sweeping epic Let's Go with Pancho Villa (1936, 92 mins.) follows the adventures of six young men who leave their rural homes to join Pancho Villa's army, enduring hardship, loss, and disillusionment over the Revolution in the process. Shot by Gabriel Figueroa (The Fugitive), one of the world's most gifted black and white cinematographers.

Editor's Note
Directed by Fernando de Fuentes, a pioneer of early Mexican cinema who's been called "the Mexican John Ford," this trilogy of films set during the Mexican Revolution is often considered his greatest achievement.

PRISONER 13 tells the story of a son trying to make up for his father's mistakes, and of a mother's heart-wrenching attempts to save her own flesh and blood. EL COMPADRE MENDOZA is tale of betrayal and amorality, starring Alfredo del Diestro as Mendoza, a clever pragmatist who survives by supporting both the Zapatistas and the government--until he's forced to choose sides. Following six young men as they leave their homes to join Pancho Villa's army, LET'S GO WITH PANCHO VILLA shows these soldiers struggling with doubts, defeats, and--ultimately--becoming disillusioned with the Revolution.
