But the sons of the man he killed have other plans. This existential neo-Western was not only Ripstein's first film, but the first realized screenplay by Nobel Prize winner Gabriel Garcia Marquez and legendary novelist Carlos Fuentes. Presented in a brand-new restoration, Time to Die sets in motion many of the themes that Arturo Ripstein would explore in his later work. (1966, 90 min, digital) Part of: Mexican Maladies: Arturo Ripstein from First to Last Jan 25 -- Jan 28, 2018 Screening Room Arturo Ripstein is one of the Mexico's most subversive and original directors. He has taken inspiration from filmmakers such as Luis Bunuel, and also influenced a whole further generation, including Alex Cox, director of the 1986 cult classic Sid and Nancy. Now in his fifth decade of filmmaking, Ripstein transforms popular genres into fearless attacks on prejudice and complacency in Mexican society. This two-part program presents his very first film (in a new digital restoration) and his most recent work from 2015.
