"This fascinating study presents for the first time the full story of Eisenstein's disastrous attempt to make a great film in Mexico - a motion picture 'symphony' of Mexican life, history, culture, and the perpetual Mexican fiesta with death. Based in major part on the Eisenstein-Sinclair correspondence, it takes the form of a documentary account of the period November 1930 to June 1932, during which the most famous cause celebre in the history of the film industry unfolded."
