Infused with a sophistication built during an early career working in Hollywood, Galindo’s vividly corrupt world emerges from the shadows and takes to the open road, amidst harsh factory conditions and driven by the irresistible seductiveness of the rumba.
Iconic elements materialise in the rich black-and-white textures filmed by the great modernist photographer Agustín Jiménez. With Roberto Cañedo and Amalia Aguilar. Digital Restoration.
Presented by the Melbourne Cinémathèque & ACMI
The Devil’s Money
A textile factory worker meets by chance a seductive rumba dancer who offers him a way to make some quick money. He initially refuses, but after the death of his father and the mounting funeral expenses, he returns to her for help.
