Program Length: 60 min
Premiere Date: October 7, 2023 at 8 PM (American Masters and VOCES Co-presentation)

The life of Mexican muralist José Clemente Orozco (1883-1949), a life filled with drama, adversity, and triumph, is one of the great stories of the modern era. Despite poverty, childhood rheumatic fever that damaged his heart and an explosion in his youth that cost him his left hand, Orozco persisted in his wish to become a celebrated artist.

A fully Spanish version of OROZCO: Man of FIRE will be rebroadcast in October 2023 as an American Masters and VOCES co-presentation. This marks the first time American Masters has broadcast a film in Spanish. An English version will be streamed on the PBS App.
