Charles Ramírez Berg, Professor in Media Studies at the University of Texas and author of The Classical Mexican Cinema, joins us to present two classics of the cabaretera (nightclub drama) genre of Mexican film. This week, we present SALÓN MÉXICO starring Marga López and shot in exhilarating black and white by the great Gabriel Figueroa. This program is made possible in part by a grant from Humanities Texas, the state affiliate of the National Endowment for the Humanities. In 35mm.
