"Vámonos Con Pancho Villa" presents a disenchanted vision of the Mexican Revolution about a group of ranchers who, for their courage, are nicknamed "The Lions of San Pablo." They are brought into the Division of the North under the orders of Francisco Villa, and die without recognition of their heroism.
This film will be presented by Filmoteca de la UNAM. The Director of Filmoteca Hugo Villa will be presenting it with Maestra Anel Pérez, Director of the Coordination of Cultural Diffusion of the UNAM.
