REDES (1935) (DVD)
Composed By:  Silvestre Revueltas

An iconic product of the Mexican Revolution, Redes (1935) combines the talents of a master composer, Silvestre Revueltas, and a master cinematographer, Paul Strand. Its marriage of music and the moving image attains heights of epic grandeur. The co-directors are Fred Zinnemann (en route to Hollywood) and Emilio Gomez Muriel. Because dialogue rarely overlaps music, it is possible to re-record Revueltas's galvanizing score and discover musical riches inaudible on the original monaural soundtrack. As the Redes concert suites by revueltas and Erich Kleiber omit much, the present DVD is the world premiere recording of Revueltas's full score, one of the highest achievements in the history of film music.

Having studied at the right hand of famed documentarian Robert Flaherty, young aspiring director Fred Zinneman was eminently qualified to collaborate on the direction of the Mexican "actuality" film The Wave (aka Redes). The film was the brainchild of New York-based photographer-documentary producer Paul Strand, who wrote the script and shared directorial credit with the fledgling Zinneman. Filmed on location in Vera Cruz from 1934 to 1935, the continuity follows a group of peasant fisherman as they come to grips with being exploited by local business interests. Strand concentrated on most of the documentary aspects of the film, shooting endless footage of fisherman at work and play, while Zinneman selected the principal actors and handled the dramatic scenes.
