1822 el año que fuimos imperio( Visual )

2 editions published in 2004 in Spanish and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Set during Agustín de Iturbide's brief period of rule over Mexico in the early 1820s, this filmed play presents the founding fathers of Mexico, and mocks their glorification as national heroes. Almost all of Mexico's early politicians are portrayed, including Iturbide--the first Emperor of Mexico--Generals Guadalupe Victoria and Antonio López de Santa Anna and others. These figures are balanced by Fray Servando Teresa de Mier, who spoke bluntly of abuses, putting love of country and fellow men above love of self. The play's dialogue especially highlights the hypocritical demagogical speeches of early Mexican congressmen, particularly in contrast with Padre Mier's disarming honesty
