This is a movie guide for the film “Máscara de Zorro” in Spanish. There is a brief introduction to the historical period, 7 matching character identifications, 25 short answer free response questions about plot and character development and an essay question. Many of the questions focus on the role of Zorro as hero of the people, the transfer of this identity from Diego to Alejandro and Elena’s search for her true identity. This movie works very well for AP Spanish Language and culture classes studying the Public and Private Identities theme, particularly the contexts on National and Ethnic Identity and Heroes and Historical Figures. Other upper level classes studying historical figures, heroes, identity or early California. An answer key for all discrete items is included.
