Abstract

In 1780, the Inca leader José Gabriel Tupac Amaru (1738-1781) led workers, slaves and Indians into South America's first full-scale revolt against Spanish colonialism. This powerful, handsomely mounted biographical film depicts the failed rebellion which led to Tupac's grisly execution in Cusco's central plaza. Túpac Amaru became a symbol of liberation in Latin America, and the film ends with black-and-white newsreel footage from 1975 of the birth of the Túpac Amaru Revolutionary Movement, an agrarian Peruvian Marxist-Leninist guerrilla group.
