La vuelga

In 1968, Mexican students struck for a couple of months in order to obtain better rights for students in the public universities. In Toluca, the strike began in the faculty of medicine, where only a few students were able to provoke a major student movement among the others. Today, 43 years later, ‘el Centro cinematografico de Metepec’, is making a movie about those days, about Mexico – and above all Toluca – in ’68. I went to take a look the day they were filming in the faculty of medicine.

    Nice pics. I love the first one with the girl. The way you took it, she’s the missing ‘i’ in the word ‘chico’. Funny knowing she’s a chica.
    Lucky shot or do you have a never stopping urge to see special things ? I’ll go for the second …

    Ciao !
