A total of eight classic films of Mexican cinema, including “Dos monjes” (Two monks) by Juan Bustillo Oro and “Maclovia” (Maclovia) by Emilio "El Indio" Fernández, are presented as part of the II Cinema Ritrovato in the city of Bologna, Italy, with the support The International Film Festival of Morelia (FICM), the Film Archive of the National Autonomous University of Mexico (UNAM) and Mexico's National Cineteca.

Being regarded as one of the best festivals in the world to present films of great historical value, recovered and digitized by film archives, Cinema Ritrovato is organized annually by the Bologna Film Library and its 31st edition will be held from June 24 to July 2. The program Revolution and adventure: Mexican cinema in the Golden Age begins with the birth of sound cinema in the early 1930s and includes a variety of styles and genres from the 40s and 50s until the early 1960s.

The selection is framed for two very controversial films, “El Compadre Mendoza” (Buddy Mendoza), by Fernando de Fuentes and “La Sombra del caudillo” (The Warlord's Shadow), by Julio Bracho. These films set the tone for this collection of eight Mexican classics which, considered as a whole, offer a critical and intelligent exploration of the widespread discontent that the Mexican Revolution left behind and an exciting display of the varied artistic responses that the movement caused over four decades.

This material will be part of the section A hundred years ago, composed by 50 films made in 1917.

The eight titles will be displayed in 35 millimeters or in digitized or restored versions by the Film Archive of UNAM and the National Cineteca. The program was curated by the FICM.
