Sunday July 22, 2018, 7:30pm
Los Angeles Filmforum presents
Fernando Llanos: Matria
At the Spielberg Theatre at the Egyptian, 6712 Hollywood Blvd., Los Angeles, CA 90028
Los Angeles premiere! Fernando Llanos in person!

Antolin Jiménez fought alongside Pancho Villa, represented the state of Oaxaca in Congress, and was the president of the National Charro Association. In 1942 as rumors spread of a Nazi invasion of Mexico Jimenez formed and trained a group of 100 000 fighters to repel the attack. Seventy years later Jimenez’s grandson Fernando Llanos brings us the film Matria tracing the director’s quest to understand more about his mysterious grandfather and the culture of charros in the mid-20th century. Deeply rooted family secrets are unearthed in the process and what begins as a character profile becomes an entangled story of family lore and a window into the history of modern Mexico.

"I love the setting, and the film captured me from beginning to end." (Translated) – Carlos Reygadas, filmmaker

“Fernando Llanos is one of the most important new media artists working today in Mexico. He is undoubtedly a tireless champion of the independent media.” – Jesse Lerner

“An irreverent, courageous and moving portrait.” -- Martha Sosa, Film producer (Amores Perros, Presunto Culpable)

Tickets: $10 general; $6 for students/seniors; free for Filmforum members. Available in advance from Brown Paper Tickets at https://matria.bpt.me or at the door.

“My grandfather was from Tabasco, he fought along with Pancho Villa, became a Master Mason, was deputy 3 times for Oaxaca, and president of the National Association of Charros. In 1942 he formed The Legion of Mexican fighters, a group of 100,000 charros that were training to repel a possible Nazi invasion in Mexico. The story of success that was told harbored a secret that affected my family and was discovered while I was making this documentary.” – Fernando Llanos
