University of Virginia Spanish Theater Presents: El gesticulador

Set in the heady times of post-revolutionary Mexico, El gesticulador (1938) invites us to reflect on the interplay between the kinds of things that are often understood in oppositional terms: history and myth, honesty and duplicity, truth and falsehood. Amid debates about "fake news" in our own political discourse, El gesticulador's critical take on the power of language to create, reflect, and, ultimately, subvert reality remains as current today as it was in the 1930s.
