Enamorada (A Woman in Love, Emilio Fernández, 1946), a riff on Shakespeare's Taming of the Shrew set during the Mexican Revolution, returns to the big screen in a newly restored version. Chronicling the romance between a general and a spirited upper-class woman, the film is considered one of the classic Mexican cinema's finest. Dr. Jacqueline Ávila (University of Tennessee - Knoxville), author of Cinesonidos: Film Music and National Identity in Mexico's Época de Oro, will introduce the film. Copies of her book will be available for sale.
