MUBI & Boxee Premiere REVOLUCIÓN Worldwide This Weekend

This weekend only, November 20 - 21, MUBI, the on demand movie service for independent, international and classic films, will stream the film festival hit Revolución to Boxee users around the globe for free.

One of the rare films to play at the Berlin, Cannes, and New York Film festivals, Revolución was made in honor of the 100th anniversary of Mexican revolution. The project was masterminded by the ten hottest young Mexican directors, from the established (art house master Carlos Reygadas) to the buzzed about and up-and-coming (Amat Escalante and Gerardo Naranjo), to international superstar Gael García Bernal, who shares directorial credit with his Y tu mamá también co-star, Diego Luna.

Nov. 20th also coincides with the film’s simultaneous release in theaters and on DVD, and the online premiere represents the impressive ability of MUBI to deliver an exciting new film to fans worldwide, exclusively and for free, all at once . We’re honored to be able to share this visionary film and innovative release with our users around the globe thanks to MUBI (look for it in the featured section this weekend).

The Mexican revolution began one hundred years ago with the overthrow of the country’s dictatorial President Porfirio Díaz. In Revolución, ten directors look back sat the violent upheaval that was to bring dramatic changes to the country. Enjoy the rich cinematography, impressive storytelling, and cultural reflections on their own heritage of these young visionaries this weekend for free on MUBI.

    This is awesome!
    I’m really loving my boxee box. it’s a little rough around the edges and it had better get fixed, but I’m a little sick of people picking nits when on top of more content than I can consume you serve up some extra special jems like this. I hadn’t tried out MUBI yet but this will give me a taste. Maybe I’ll get into it.

  2. That's pretty sweet! Way to go Boxee and MUBI!

    That's funny that Gael is staring in another movie about hispanic revolutionaries. He also played the role of Che in The Motorcycle Diaries.
