Francesco Taboada Tabone, director of 2004’s The Last Zapatistas, returns to RiverRun in 2007 with another fascinating glimpse into Mexican history. Like his previous film, Pancho Villa: The Revolution Isn’t Over focuses on a mythical and controversial figure of Latin American lore, this time the bold revolutionary general Pancho Villa. Intertwining historical footage, first-person reminiscences from the aged but spirited folks who knew Villa personally, and pertinent comparisons to today’s Mexico, the film creates a compelling portrait of a man whose inspirational legacy has long outlived his physical presence. As one century-old friend of Villa puts it, “If Villa came back today, I would join him again. Viva Pancho Villa! Viva la Revolución!”
