A HUNDRED YEARS OF LA DOÑA: A TRIBUTE TO MARIA FELIX

For all those rabid fans of Mexican actress María Félix, who are legion throughout the Caribbean . . .

In celebration of the 100th anniversary of the birth of Mexican actress Maria Felix, a muse for poets, musicians and painters, our three organizations will present two shorts on her life, a panel discussion, and a screening of six of her films. This icon film actress, who refused to get caught up with the Hollywood lifestyle, was called La Doña by her critics and fans. She was beautiful, seductive and clever – a powerful combination!

One thought on “A HUNDRED YEARS OF LA DOÑA: A TRIBUTE TO MARIA FELIX

  1. Hi,
    I’m doing some research on the Mexican Painter Mario Chavez, who painted this portrait of Maria Felix for your exhibition dated April 1, 2014.
    Kindly let me know if at that occasion you have published any book or material that I can consult or acquire?

    Many thanks,
    Sady
