Utilizing key archival footage and interviews with historians, Mexican filmmaker Diana Roldán helms the 1999 documentary, Pancho Villa: el ángel y el fierro, about the controversy surrounding the south-of-the-border revolutionary Fernando 'Pancho' Villa. Roldán pays equal attention to those who perceive Villa as the savior of Mexico, and those who regard him as a misguided and deplorable criminal. The film traces Villa's rise and fall - from his early tutelage under Abraham González, through his 1923 assassination in Paral, Chihuahua. In Spanish.
