Film: La piedra ausente

March 10, 2016

7 pm

This documentary by Sandra Rozental and Jesse Lerner explores the present-day relevance of relics from the past. It relates the story of the journey of the colossal stone statue (23 feet high and 168 tons) of a pre-Hispanic rain deity, thought to be Tlaloc, from the village of San Miguel Coatlinchán, where it had lain for centuries in a dry riverbed, to its present location in front of Mexico City’s Museo Nacional de Antropología e Historia. The removal of the statue caused a rebellion in the village and a subsequent intervention by the army. Today, it stands in its urban setting as one of the principal icons of national identity. Presented in partnership with the Mexican Consulate in Albuquerque.
