The most internationally awarded Mexican film in history and the most requested film on last year’s evaluation forms, The Violin detailes the struggle between the peasants and military in 1970s-era Mexico. Don Plutarco (Angel Tavira) is a dignified elder who makes his living as a traveling musician. On the side, he secretly smuggles weapons and supplies to the freedom fighters attempting to overthrow the oppressive regime. When he returns to his hometown to find that it has been occupied by the army in his absence, the drama begins.
