Xochimilco, 1914

This is a pretty damn good short animated film about the historic meeting between Pancho Villa and Emiliano Zapata in Xochimilco (which at the time was its own town just south of Mexico City, these days its just another neighborhood) in 1914. It’s based on original stenographic recordings of their conversation, and two days afterwards they marched on the capital and Porfirio Diaz fled the country. The film is by a Mexican art collective called Los Viumasters (http://www.viumasters.com/), and is delivered here to you my friends in honor of Mexican Independence Day, September 16th. Okay, I’m a wee bit late.
