The discomfort of the Mexican society manifested in Music
As I Mexican living abroad every time I come back to Mexico I ask myself why there are so many problems in Mexico. At first sight, one might think it is coincidental to random events, lifestyle, economy. This documentary offers one insight of *why* Mexico is in its current situation and the big role politics have played in worsening the situation.
This movie is one of the many eye-openers that every Mexican, or anyone interested in Mexico, needs to watch to understand the crisis that Mexico has lived for decades. And also gives a good overview of the government and its presidents (or better called dictators as they are not chosen by the people but it is a make-believe) from the 60s until today.
