Movie: Orozco: Man of Fire

Directors Laurie Coyle and Rick Tejada-Flores create a visually arresting and whimsical documentary portrait (90 mins) of Mexican muralist José Clemente Orozco (1883–1949), whose dramatic life, iconoclastic personality, and dynamic painting changed the way we see art and politics. Orozco’s story plays out against the backdrop of the Mexican Revolution, the Great Depression, and both World Wars. Orozco survived the loss of his left hand and the destruction of two-thirds of his early work by U.S. border agents. He and his colleagues Diego Rivera and David Alfaro Siqueiros launched the Mexican mural movement that captured the imagination of Depression-era America. When Franklin Delano Roosevelt put American artists to work on public walls during the 1930s, he looked to the Mexican mural renaissance as a model.
