Director Acelo Ruiz Villanueva

Documentary Film

Guaymas and Toño seem ordinary citizens. They are united by a common past: both were imprisoned in the Oblatos Penitentiary, in Guadalajara, for being part of the September 23rd Communist League, the largest urban guerrilla in Mexico in the 70s. On January 22, 1976, they escaped in a complex operation that perplexed the police corporations. In this documentary, they tell how they organized the escape, why they fought and why they’re fighting now.

Guaymas y Toño parecen ciudadanos ordinarios. Los une un pasado común: ambos estuvieron presos en el Penal de Oblatos, en Guadalajara, por ser parte de la Liga Comunista 23 de Septiembre, la guerrilla urbana más grande de México en los años setenta. El 22 de enero de 1976 se fugaron en una compleja operación que dejó perplejas a las corporaciones policiacas. En este documental relatan cómo organizaron la fuga, por qué luchaban y por qué luchan ahora.
