In the summer of 2011 I had the pleasure of working on a documentary project in the San Francisco Bay Area. I was asked to make a few drawings depicting scenes from the film using the printmaking style of the famous Taller de Grafica Popular from Mexico. Featured in the film are three of my drawings: “The Tiger Unleashed”, “Tiger, Carran and Madero”, and “Calles the Puppeteer”.
The Storm that Swept Mexico is a documentary that recounts the story of the Mexican Revolution of 1910, an episode that changed the course of Mexico’s political and economic history. The two hour PBS documentary uses contemporary footage and interviews with participants, historians, and others, as well as with period photographs and archival film. The Storm that Swept Mexico is a Paradigm Productions/ITVS feature length special for PBS, in association with the National Endowment for the Humanities and Latino Public Broadcasting. Produced by Raymond Telles and Kenn Rabin.
