The lineup includes TCM premieres of seven films by Mexican filmmaker Ismael Rodriguez, along with showings of Elia Kazan's "Viva Zapata!" and Luis Puenzo's "Old Gringo."
"In 1910, a wealthy young Mexican named Francisco Madero challenged the dictatorship of Porfirio Diaz and kicked off a decades-long struggle that would become known as the Mexican Revolution," TCM noted in a news release Friday. "Throughout September, Turner Classic Movies will commemorate the 100th anniversary of this pivotal event with a collection of films about the Mexican Revolution and its most intriguing figures, from Pancho Villa to Emilio Zapata."
TCM host Robert Osborne said in a statement Friday the showings will offer viewers a chance to learn more about Mexico's "long struggle against dictatorship and corruption" while viewing work by some of the country's top film talent.
"The Mexican Revolution is a fascinating period in history, full of memorable people and exciting stories," he said.
