La Otra Conquista (The Other Conquest) by Salvador Carrasco is an inteligent and emotional depiction of the horrors the Aztec endured under the heavy hand of the Spanish colonialism. At the stories center is Tepotzlin (Tomas) an Aztec scribe and son of the Aztec emperor who is coerced into converting to Catholicism and the psychological and spiritual rift that conversion creates. The characters are well thought out and wonderfully acted. Executive producer, and tenor, Placido Domingo is featured in the sound-track. The film, originally released in 2000 to much acclaim, is now available on DVD. The special features include interviews with the casts and crew as well as deleted scenes. Check it out!
