SANTA ANA– Screening of REDES (1936) followed by Q&A with Professor of Musicology Leonora Saavedra
May 3, 2018 @ 12:00 am – 2:00 pmFree
SANTA ANA–Come to this Humanities for All Quick Grant funded program, a free screening of REDES (Fred Zinnemann/Emilio Gómez Muriel, 1936), (Thursday, May 3, 7:30pm) followed by presentation and Q&A on the film’s score by Leonora Saavedra, Associate Professor of Musicology at University of California – Riverside.
In this vivid, documentary-like dramatization of the daily grind of men struggling to make a living by fishing on the Gulf of Mexico (mostly played by real- life fishermen), one worker’s terrible loss instigates a political awakening among him and his fellow laborers. A singular coming together of talents, Redes, commissioned by a progressive Mexican government, was co-written and gorgeously shot by the legendary photographer Paul Strand. Silvestre Revueltas’ score for the film remains one of his greatest works, full of captivating rhythms, vivid instrumental color, and characteristic melodic inspiration.
