The Consulate General of Mexico in El Paso, the Centro Cultural Mexicano Paso del Norte and the University of Texas at El Paso invite the border community to the Film Festival “Época de Oro”, a time when Mexican cinema acquired its own identity and had a great artistic and commercial impact on the world.

Considered by critics the best of comedian Mario Moreno “Cantinflas”, the director based the final scene on real events in 1925.


Cantinflas is a lazy and irresponsible man who goes out with a maid who works in Mr. Calletano’s house. Dolores, the employer’s wife, confuses Cantinflas with a lover, and he takes advantage of the situation to stay and live in the house.
