Season 7, Episode 10 El General

First Aired: August 3, 2014

The remarkable "El General" interweaves the story of Mexican president Plutarco Elias Calles, who served from 1924 to '28 but whose power continued until his 1936 exile, with glimpses of modern-day Mexico. The doc features his daughter's tape recordings, which she made in her 70s for a never-realized book, as well as archival footage and the deft narration of his great-granddaughter, filmmaker Natalia Almada. The winner of the 2009 Sundance directing award for U.S. documentaries.
