The Other Conquest

1998

The Other Conquest (Spanish: La Otra Conquista) is a 2000 Mexican feature film written and directed by Salvador Carrasco and produced by Alvaro Domingo. World-renowned opera singer Plácido Domingo was the executive producer. The Other Conquest was originally distributed by Twentieth Century Fox and it was re-released theatrically in 2008 by Alliance Atlantis/Union Station Media.

The film is a drama about the aftermath of the 1520s Spanish Conquest of Mexico told from the perspective of the indigenous Aztec people. It explores the social, religious, and psychological changes brought about by a historical process of colonization that both defined the American continent.

It is regarded by top critics (e.g., Kevin Thomas , Richard Nilsen , Larry Ratliff , among others) as one of the best cinematic explorations on the effects of colonization and also "one of the more astonishing feature film debuts in recent memory" .

The Other Conquest depicts the complex fusion that took place between the Catholic faith brought to Mexico by the Spaniards and the Aztec beliefs of the indigenous Native Americans.
