- Sergeĭ Ėĭzenshteĭn, meksikanskai︠a︡ fantasii︠a︡ Sergei Eisenstein Mexican fantasy /
- "In 1930, legendary film pioneer Sergei Eisenstein (Battleship Potemkin, October) arrived in Mexico to make Que viva Mexico, a film about the struggles, triumphs and tragedies of this unexpectedly rich and diverse country. Eisenstein's luminous images capture the heart and soul of this amazing land. When Eisenstein was compelled to return to Russia, he was forced to leave the film behind and was never permitted to finish his 'lost masterpiece.' Filmmaker [and] Eisenstein biographer Oleg Kovalov used his insights into the late master's genius to create this thoughtful and contemplative interpretation of the film that might have been made."--Http://www.image-entertainment.com.
