San Francisco Art Institute Screening or ART and Revolutions

Standing next to a 1924 print showing Posada's famed calavera Catrina, Mexican Consul General in San Francisco, Dr. Andres Roemer, opened the Sept. 17 screening of Searching for Posada: ART and Revolutions. Over one hundred attendees consisting of artists, students, professors and the general public watched the documentary. The ensuing Question and Answer session with director Victor Mancilla and producer Jim Nikas lasted longer than the film itself. Mission accomplished!

The screening at the San Francisco Art Institute represents a unique occasion as it is one of the most prestigious schools on the West Coast and it is home to one of the earliest murals done in the US by Diego Rivera back in 1931. Diego Rivera played a big part in helping to recognize Posada's role and legacy.
