Screening of 'Enamorada'(1946). A film directed by Emilio Fernández.
A nimble fusion of tearjerker, screwball comedy and national foundation myth, Enamorada transposes The Taming of the Shrew to a rural town during the Revolution where the liberal General Reyes (Armendáriz) falls head over heels for Beatriz (Maria Félix), the hotheaded daughter of the town's wealthiest reactionary. Enamorada is a work of astonishing visual intricacy, thanks to the cinematography Gabriel Figueroa, as Fernández mobilizes the Revolution for a mythic reformulation of national gender archetypes.
