Antonio Banderas delivers a powerful performance as the title character of this extraordinary story, revealing how Mexican Revolutionary Villa allowed a Hollywood crew to film him and his army fighting the nationalist Huerta forces, altering the course of film and military history in the process. The adventure starts when movie giants D.W. Griffith and Harry Aiken send a junior executive, Frank Thayer to persuade the cash-strapped, publicity-hungry Villa to let them film his revolution. Stepping into the crossfire, Thayer's crew risk their lives in the mingling of fiction and reality, and prove that "the lens is mightier than the sword." Emmy® Winner
