¡dios te salve mirreina!

Video, 2021

The images displayed throughout this video correspond the most recent visit done by a Mexican head of state to the UK, which occurred in 2015 by former president Enrique Peña Nieto, who travelled with 200 guests and spent 280,000 pounds on a two day trip. As well as the only official visit the Queen has done to Mexico, which corresponds to the year of 1975 in times of Luis Echeverría, another controversial character. Both Echeverría and Peña Nieto are accused of holding responsibility in actions regarding the mass killing of students: Echeverría developing a key role in the massacre of Tlatelolco of 1968, and Peña Nieto allowing the disappearance of 43 normalistas in 2014. Both interactions with the Queen occurred after the disgraceful events.
