Research output: Contribution to journalReview articlepeer-review


In 1970, the Argentine documentary filmmaker Raymundo Gleyzer traveled to Mexico, authorized to cover the Luis Echeverría presidential campaign. However, he stayed on clandestinely to film the failures of the 1910 Revolution. This essay analyzes Gleyzer's documentary discourse in this clandestine undertaking. The Mexican government sought to repress the resulting documentary, and the latter may have been a factor to his disappearance in 1976 at the hands of the Argentine military coup.
