Mexico en tus sentidos

At the Zócalo I saw a really cool (and huge) exhibit called "Mexico en tus sentidos" by the photographer/videographer Willy Sousa (news story on it here).  Sousa spent years going all across Mexico to get at the cultural foundations of the country, with high definition photos and videos accompanied by short texts about aspects of Mexico.  The end of the exhibit includes a short series of videos on a large movie screen, with incredible colors and scenes.  It is nationalist, to be sure (e.g. the end of the video shows different people with the Mexican flag) but in an affectionate way that highlights the racial and cultural mixes that make up Mexico.

I haven't been to Mexico City for years, and in general had forgotten how impressive the place is.
