Cinematographer Gabriel Figueroa and photographer Manuel Álvarez Bravo collaborated on a documentary commemorating legendary muralist Diego Rivera’s art career in 1949, but shelved the project before completion. Figueroa’s son and Rivera’s grandson embarked on a new collaboration after discovering the lost footage and retracing the trio’s steps — the final cut includes trenchant commentary about the work of all three men, offering a glimpse into their private artistic worlds. Free, 6:30-8:30pm, Retama Auditorium, UTSA 1604 Campus, One UTSA Circle, (210) 458-2923.

Rivera's grandson talks about defending his grandfather's legacy from Frida Kahlo's followers, in the Current's story, here.
