El General

In El General, a set of tapes inherited from her grandmother launches director Natalia Almada on a journey through family memory and Mexico’s troubled past. Without shying from accusations of brutality, the film explores the legacy of Almada’s great-grandfather Plutarco Elias Calles, a former Mexican president. Through her grandmother’s testimony and street scenes of modern-day Mexico City, El General explores Mexico’s timeless distrust of elected leaders, while lovingly—and honestly—providing tribute to one of Mexico’s most controversial figures.
