Cinco De Mayo:The Battle

With Director Rafa Lara - May 5; 6:30pm

Mexican filmmaker Rafa Lara considered one of the biggest sensations in the movie industry returns to Portland to present a film he both wrote and directed, the 2013 epic Cinco De Mayo: The Battle.

 

Cinco De Mayo:The Battle chronicles the story of Mexico’s Battle of Puebla, the most important battle in Mexico’s history. When the imposing French army invades Mexico to set up a monarchy, General Ignacio Zaragoza (Kuno Becker) must defend the city of Puebla, commanding a poorly armed and outnumbered troop of men. The film recounts the bravery of a people pushed to the limit, fighting for their nation, their families and their pride. The biggest budget Mexican film of all time, Cinco De Mayo:The Battle features an all-star cast, including Angelica Aragon, Kuno Becker, Mario Zaragoza, Liz Gallardo and Christian Vasquez.

 

Join us on May 5th for this magnificent production and the opportunity to meet director Rafa Lara.
