The exhibition will close on November 21 and will be held at the Principal Auditorium, attached to the University of San Lorenzo, in Colonia del Valle.
Berta Zapata, a member of the organizing committee for the Benito Juarez International Award, told Prensa Latina that the exhibition would show the values and achievements of the Cuban Revolution through cinema.
She explained that one film would be exhibited and debated every Wednesday.
The program includes such motion pictures as "Viva Cuba", directed by Juan Carlos Cremata, the anthological "Memorias del Subdesarrollo" (Memories of Underdevelopment) by Tomas Gutierrez Alea, and "Elpidio Valdés", by Juan Padron.
Joaquin Guzman's "Cuba, Una Esperanza que no Debe Morir" (Cuba, A Hope that Must not Die), a documentary on the economic crisis - known as special period - that affected Cuba in the early 1990s, is scheduled for Sept. 19.
"Desafio" (Challenge), a series of interviews and testimonies by world-known personalities, made in 2006 by Roberto Chile, on Cuban President Fidel Castro's 80th birthday, will also be exhibited in Mexico.
The list of Cuban films also includes "Suite Havana", "Hello Hemingway", "Viviendo al Limite", "Barrio Cuba" and "Páginas del Diario de Mauricio".
