Mexican Maladies: Arturo Ripstein from First to Last
After serving his time, a former gunman returns to his hometown, planning to live a quiet life.

But the sons of the man he killed have other plans. This existential neo-Western was not only Ripstein’s first film, but the first realized screenplay by Nobel Prize winner Gabriel García Márquez and legendary novelist Carlos Fuentes. Presented in a brand-new restoration, Time to Die sets in motion many of the themes that Arturo Ripstein would explore in his later work. (1966, 90 min, digital)
