In conjunction with the High's massive exhibition of works by Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera, the museum is hosting a film series throughout the spring, titled Extraordinary Cinematic Visions: Mexico Past and Present Through the Eyes of Gabriel Figueroa and Carlos Reygadas.
The first half of the series will feature films by the late cinematographer Gabriel Figueroa, often associated with Mexico's Golden Age of cinema. Starting in April, the series will shift its focus to contemporary director Carlos Reygadas. We've compiled a crash course of trailers for the entire film series and your viewing convenience. Take a look.
