Mexico in 200 seconds

21 December 2010

 

Sombrero tip to Esther (From Xico) for linking to Conacultura’s 200 second introduction to Diego Rivera’s Epopeya del pueblo Mexicano (1929-1935). While a nice overview, one really should spend more than 200 seconds on Mexican history and the nation’s historical figures. And, much as one SHOULD go to the Palacio Nacional, not everyone can this time of year… and Rivera only shows the course of history up through the end of the 1920s. Not exactly in the same medium, but there is ANOTHER work that extends through the mid 2000s, also accessible to the non-specialist, AND that can be delivered right to your own home.
