Emilio Fernández is a lyrical-nationalist filmmaker nicknamed “El Indio” who connected Mexico to its indigenous roots both narratively and visually through his films. A Woman in Lovestrives to portray an authentic Mexican identity, using the revolutionary context to pose questions about the class conflict that divided the country in the early 20th century.
