On July 20, 1923, a lookout was posted on a street corner in Hidalgo del Parral, Chihuahua. As Villa's car passed, he signaled a group of gunmen who ambushed the vehicle, riddling the passengers with bullets.  An active revolutionary, the general had many enemies, but who exactly killed Pancho Villa?  Was it an act of personal vengeance or a political crime?

EL ASESINATO DE VILLA: LA CONSPIRACION answers these and other questions by analyzing the main suspects and their motives and revealing the network behind the conspiracy, which stretched into the upper levels of power.

In reviewing the myths surrounding the assassination of one of the most iconic symbols in Mexican history, the documentary presents classified information, new evidence in the case and the motives for the July 20, 1923 ambush. Through dramatizations, it reconstructs the scene of the crime and draws on the opinions of renowned Villa experts, including writer and filmmaker Guillermo Arriaga and historians Jesus Vargas Valdes, Antonio Campuzano and Dr. Jane Dale Lloyd.

EL ASESINATO DE VILLA: LA CONSPIRACION is an original production of Discovery en Espanol by Nao Films, with Patricia Arriaga as producer and Michela Giorelli and Rafael Rodriguez supervising.  It was directed by Emilio Maille, whose previous productions include such successful films as "Los anos Arruza" (1996) and "Rosario Tijeras" (2005).
