ITVS celebrates Hispanic Heritage Month with Raymond Telles’ documentary and interactive website on the complex historical, social, political, economic and cultural forces that shaped the Mexican Revolution and its legacy.
The Mexican Revolution, the first major political and social revolution of the 20th century, not only changed the course of Mexican history, but also profoundly impacted its relationships with the rest of the world. The Storm That Swept Mexico, produced in association with Latino Public Broadcasting, looks at the complex historical, social, political, economic, and cultural forces that shaped the Revolution, influenced its course and determined its consequences and legacy.
Watch The Storm That Swept Mexico throughout Hispanic Heritage Month on PBS (check local listings).
The enhanced website features three national standards-aligned lesson plans and film modules which allow high school and college students to connect with pivotal historic events in Mexico and with the issues that resonate in Mexico today. Check out the website and educator resources on pbs.org >>
