Event Description

Salón México  (Mexico, 1949)

 

This was Emilio Fernández’s first entry into the películas de cabareteras (dance hall film), a specifically Mexican film genre, involving working-class women forced to work as prostitutes.  Mercedes works at a large dance hall while secretly putting her kid sister through school until she commits a desperate—but justifiable—crime that leads to tragedy.

 

DCP, b/w, 95 min.  Director: Emilio Fernández.  Cast: Marga López, Miguel Inclán, Rodolfo Acosta, Roberto Cañeo.

 

Víctimas del pecado  (Mexico, 1951)

 

One of Mexico’s most famous cabaret films begins in high gear and never relents.  A young prostitute, Violeta, saves a discarded baby from a garbage can beginning a monumental struggle between herself and a pimp.

 

DCP, b/w, 90 min.  Director: Emilio Fernández.  Cast: Ninón Sevilla, Tito Junco, Rodolfo Acosta, Rita Montaner.
