Orozco: Man of Fire

From early hardship and toil as a political cartoonist, Jose Clemente Orozco became a leading painter of the Mexican Mural Renaissance. His murals would adorn Mexico’s most revered public spaces, inspire African-American contemporaries and move President Franklin D. Roosevelt to put artists to work during the Great Depression. Narrated by Anjelica Huston with Damián Alcázar as the voice of the artist, Orozco: Man of Fire is a co-production of Paradigm Productions, KERA and the Independent Television Service (ITVS), in association with Latino Public Broadcasting. It is directed, written and produced by Laurie Coyle and Rick Tejada-Flores.Orozco: Man of Fire premiered nationally in September 2007 as part of American Masters.
