Maria Felix Film Tribute

A tribute to the Mexican film actress Maria Felix (1914-2002), a major star in Spanish-speaking movies from the 40s through the 60s who also appeared in a few European films (most notably Jean Renoir's French Cancan). El peñon de las animas (1942, 121 min.), Felix's feature debut, is the story of lovers from rival families. In Emilio Fernandez's Rio escondido (1948, 110 min.) she plays a rural schoolteacher. Doña Barbara (1943, 138 min.), directed by Fernando Fuentes, adapts a Romulo Gallegos novel about the settlement of the Venezuelan savannas. And Enamorada (1946, 99 min.) is about a guerrilla who falls for a girl in a small, conservative town. All four films are in Spanish without subtitles.
