Readings for 23 November and p.

482 How did the goals and actions of the government change in the 1940s? Briefly describe the discussion/argument between Perdomo and Jaramillo. How were the campesinos treated? p. 555 Who was protesting in 1968, and why? How does she portray Mexican politicians? How does she describe a Mexico “created for US tourists”? What were the students protesting? [Can you imagine UC students dying for a cause?] Why were workers unsympathetic? p. 28 You should read this before the film, but you will need to re-read it after the film, because the discussion questions will be based on the descriptions of village vs. urban life made by the author, and applied to the film.
