Corridos! Tales of Passion and Revolution is a one-hour celebration of Mexican-American music and culture. Long before television and radio, ‘Los Corridos’ were the singing voice of the people along, above and below the two thousand-mile U.S. Mexican border. The television special presents two full-length corridos: ‘Delgadina’, a haunting parable of incest in a wealthy Mexican family; and ‘Soldadera’, based on the dispatches of American journalist John Reed, in which the compelling story of Elizabeth is framed by three songs of women during the 1910 Mexican Revolution.
