„Que viva México“

" Long live Mexico, " said the ingenious filmmaker Sergei Eisenstein in the 1930s with an unfinished celluloid band. The same genius as a well-serving genius was repeated ( albeit sometimes with unwanted irony ) to the world by crowds of contemporary Mexicans. The United Mexican States, as their homeland is officially called, reminded themselves and others that it was a long time ago when they were a dependent territory of one of Europe's oldest colonial "homelands," Spain.
