She was considered Mexico’s most beautiful woman in the 20s and 30s, an artist in her own right and an inspiration and muse for numerous artists, including painter and writer Dr. Atl with whom Carmen Mondragón (a.k.a., Nahui Olin) lived a passionate and turbulent affair. Their relationship lies at the heart of Gabriel Retes’ loving and bitingly sarcastic historical drama about Education Minister José Vasconcelos’ and President Álvaro Obregón’s project to use the arts as a vehicle to uphold Mexico’s national identity. Featuring a who’s who of the period’s most significant figures, “The Revolution and the Artists” beautifully captures the intellectual effervescence of the era.
