Vámonos (Let’s go with) Pancho Villa! follows the fates of six campesinos who join up with the forces of the revolutionary general Pancho Villa after they are threatened by the Huertistas who occupy their pueblo. They encounter Villa distributing corn from a train, and he accepts them in his army. After seeing both the heroic and accidental deaths of his friends, the last of the campesinos becomes disenchanted with Villa and walks away from the Revolution into the dark. In the process, Vámonos “demythifies” one of the great legends of the revolutionary struggle. In Spanish language with English subtitles. (35mm presentation) Archival 35mm prints provided courtesy of La Filmoteca de la UNAM, Mexico.

The film will be introduced by John Mraz, Research Professor at the Instituto de Ciencias Sociales y Humanidades, Universidad Autónoma de Puebla (Mexico) and National Researcher III.
