Forgotten Village, The

Synopsis
Documentary examining the conflicts between the coming of modernization and the traditional culture of a small Mexican village in the early years of the 20th century. Alexander Hammid, famous for his outstanding educational documentaries, produced this film in an effort to create awareness among people about the need for education and better healthcare among Mexico’s remote villages. The challenges faced by government agencies in educating and treating villagers are quite clearly emphasized.
