Descriptive Entry:
This accession consists of video from the production, "The Buried Mirror: Reflections on Spain and the New World." The five video series was written and narrated by Mexican writer and social commentator Carlos Fuentes and tells the story of Spanish and Latin American civilizations from the beginnings of history to the present. Each video was 59 minutes long and was recorded in both English and Spanish. The Spanish version is titled "El espejo enterrado reflexiones sobre Espana y el nuevo mundo." The videos were presented by Sogetel in association with the Smithsonian Institution and Comision Nacional del Quinto Centenario del Descubrimiento de America (Spain). They were first aired in the United States on the Discovery Channel in conjunction with the Columbus Quincentenary.

"The Virgin and the Bull" (Program 1) explores the mix of people that created Latin America and the uniqueness of their culture. "Conflict of the Gods" (Program 2) retraces and describes the Indian world. "The Age of Gold" (Program 3) details the new found riches and changes in the society, as seen in Don Quixote, Diego Velazquez's paintings, and the baroque style of architecture. "The Price of Freedom" (Program 4) follows the path of the freedom fighter Simon Bolivar and the ramifications of their won freedom. "Unfinished Business" (Program 5) discusses the enormous changes in Spain, Latin America, and Hispanic communities.

Materials include release prints on VHS in English and Spanish, Spanish-language voice-overs on 1" magnetic tape, and edited master and submaster for a promotional video about the series.
