What a great night! Thanks to Mariachi Mexico Antiguo for an amazing performance (check out a video clip on our facebook page) and to Priscilla Page for sharing insights on the film and its inspiration—Seven Samurai—and the 2016 remake of The Magnificent Seven. Special thanks also to the folks at Memorial Hall Association for their generous assistance: Fred deVecca, Jim Neeley, Tom Massa, and Connie Clark.
Join us on Friday, October 21st, for a special evening at Memorial Hall in Shelburne Falls, MA! The 1960 film, “The Magnificent Seven” plays a key role in Luis Urrea’s novel, Into the Beautiful North. Come early and enjoy eight musicians from Mariachi Mexico Antigua perform, while weaving in the history of mariachi! Stay afterwards for a though-provoking discussion led by Priscilla Page, UMass Theater Department.
