A new montage of scenes from »Un Banquete en Tetlapayac« where Andrea Fraser played a peasant, creates the narration of a revolutionary uprising in 1930s Mexico. Fraser also appears in another role, as Francses Flynn Paine, a curator and promoter of Mexican artists such as Diego Rivera, or Alfaro Siqueiros, closely affiliated with Abby Rockefeller. The double projection is accompanied by a letter from Paine, which Fraser found during her research, stating »Mexican artists will cease to be ‘reds’ if we can get them artistic recognition.«.
