Red Dawn

Back to listing
Red Dawn, which won the Grand Jury Prize at the 1990 San Sebastián Film Festival, is set in October 1968 and is based on a real event in Mexico City – the Tlatelolco massacre. The Olympic Games are just 10 days away and from behind their apartment window, a family watches as troops open fire on civil liberty demonstrators. And soon the sound of gunshots approaches their door.
