¡Feliz Día de la Independencia!
Although the fight for independence only started on September 16th, 1810 (actual independence wasn’t achieved until September 27th, 1821), today we celebrate Mexico’s independence from Spain. Me and my family are going over to nearby Rosarito and having a carne asada (our equivalent of a barbecue) at my godmother’s beachfront house. Fun!
I wanted to take this opportunity and ask all of you guys: exclusively talking about film, what are your Mexican favorites? Like, what is your favorite Mexican film? Favorite movie about or taking place in Mexico? Favorite Mexican filmmaker? Favorite Mexican actor or actress? Anything else you want to share about the country that today celebrates 202 years of independence? Share your thoughts in the comments section 🙂 ¡VIVA MÉXICO!
