Join us for a screening of this classic film from Mexico’s golden age of cinema. In La Diosa Arrodillada, the destructive passion of Antonio Ituarte for a model is the core of this film, in which Gavaldón and José Revueltas rework the conventions of romantic melodrama to enter the territories of the film noir. Ituarte, played by Arturo de Córdova, is added to the tormented gallery of suitors built by the director throughout his filmography, struggling between passion and contempt towards Raquel, embodied by Maria Felix in the fullness of her beauty. Directed by Roberto Gavaldon.
