Prologe by Alejandro Toussaint. The volume addresses the figure of the revolutionary Emiliano Zapata on the big screen: From the first films, where his figure was despised, as in Reconstrucción Nacional (1917), to iconic ones like ¡Viva Zapata! (1952), going through fiction, documentaries, its symbolism as in Enamorada (1946), to an analysis of the locations of the tapes, the response of the international press, the influence on the Italian genre called Zapata western.
