Film: Bugambilia (Ciclo—Emilio Fernández y Gabriel Figueroa)
January 14, 2016
The plot of Bugambilia, set in Guanajuato in the 1800s, was inspired by Rodolfo Usigli’s poem “The Bugambilia,” dedicated by Usigli to Dolores del Río; the melodrama has been called the Mexican version of William Wyler’s Wuthering Heights. Amalia, the spoiled daughter of a wealthy miner, arouses the passions of all the men around her, but succumbs to an ill-starred romance with the poor but dashing Ricardo. The second of five films in this series, presented in partnership with the Mexican Consulate in Albuquerque.
