Five hundred years ago, Spanish conquistador Hernán Cortés and his men landed in Mexico, catalyzing one of the most historically influential campaigns of Spanish colonialism. This documentary showcases the encounter between two powerful leaders, Cortés and Montezuma. It tells the story of Malintzin (“la Malinche”), the indigenous woman remembered as Cortés’ translator and lover, and the role she played in history. In the film, international scholars discuss the controversy surrounding an indigenous woman, Malintzin, being allied with the Spaniards, rather than with her own people. This documentary is presented with courtesy of Fundación UNAM, Fundación Miguel Alemán, Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México, and Claro Video.  In English and Spanish with English subtitles. Contains mature content.
