¡Que viva México! (1930 - uncompleted). Eisenstein was hired by novelist Upton Sinclair to make a documentary about Mexico while Eisenstein was in the United States. Eisenstein shot 30 - 50 hours off film with only a loose plan that eventually doomed the project. Since then several filmmakers have tried to assemble the film, but there is no definitive version mainly because there was no rough cut or a script from Eisenstein. However, the illustrations drawn by Eisenstein detail his approach to shots and sequences at the time.
