(Emilio Gómez Muriel and Fred Zinnemann, Mexico, 1936, b&w, 59 min. In Spanish with English subtitles)
A singular coming together of talents, Redes, commissioned by a progressive Mexican government, was co-written and shot by photographer Paul Strand, with a score by Mexican composer Silvestre Revueltas. The PostClassical Ensemble, led by Ángel Gil Ordóñez, which recently recorded the soundtrack for the release of the restored version of the film for Naxos, performs some of Revueltas’s music. A panel discussion, featuring Post-Classical Ensemble Executive Director Joseph Horowitz and conductor Gil Ordóñez, follows the concert.
