Movie Info

Featuring a story that closely parallels the Indian revolt in the Mexican state of Chiapas that occurred in the mid 1990s, this politically correct drama chronicles the uprising of the Nahuatls against the oppressive criollos, wealthy rulers of Spanish descent who patronize and abuse them. The film is the debut production of the Nahuatl Theater Company, established in 1988. The story begins in the Nahuatl village of Youhualichan when a group of peasants decide to travel to a nearby village to stage a performance of the Colloquium of the Adoration of the King, an ancient story that is written in both Spanish and Nahuatl and represents a philosophical dialog between Saint Lucifer and the archangel Michael. They want to stage the performance inside the local Catholic Church, but the town priest refuses to allow this, in part because criollo theology refuses to grant metaphysical credibility to Lucifer.
