Abstract

The Soldiers of Pancho Villa examines the role of women and shifting ideas of gender during the Mexican Revolution. Refugio, a sexually liberated, hard drinking soldier, and Isabel, a devout Catholic and wife, experience personal transformations through their experiences as guerreras in the war. This lavish production with two of Mexico's most popular actresses marked a new era in Mexican cinema.
