An episode of “Cachitos” that revives the best of the seventies and four other proposals that can be seen on television today

Two very different films stand out in film history: The Gospel According to Matthew, in which Pasolini approaches the figure of Jesus Christ from a Marxist vision, and The Prestige, a memorable work by Christopher Nolan two wizards face each other in the wrath of science. In La 2, this week's edition of Cachitos revives the best of the seventies. Also on La 2, Documentos TV analyzes the activities of the Ku Klux Klan. For its part, DMAX analyzes the mysteries that still exist about the figure of Tutankhamun.

“Cachitos” revives the best of the 70s

10 p.m., La 2

Ángel Carmona presents Cachitos made of iron and chrome, broadcast on La 2

The fever of disco music, the bombast of symphonic rock, the fury of punk or the relaxation of reggae are featured in this episode of Cachitos. Ángel Carmona presents a special motorcycle route that covers the international pop and rock of the seventies, a decade of contrasts, of colored shirts and V-necks, of platform shoes or the time when long hair replaced the skirt, but also where sequins and danceable rhythms entered the dance floors.

“The Last Trick (The Prestige)”

The Prestige, by Christopher Nolan

10 p.m., TCM

The prestige. United States, 2006 (128 minutes). Director: Christopher Nolan. Cast: Hugh Jackman, Christian Bale, Scarlett Johansson.

Two 19th century wizards fight to become the greatest. Both will of course hide certain marked cards to further the development of the plot. In this way, “The Final Trick” becomes a remarkable spectacle in which the director of such meritorious works as “Memento”, “Batman Begins” and “The Dark Knight” skillfully recreates the duels between the two irreconcilable enemies, with the interesting addition to contrast it with the confrontation between two monster heads, that of Thomas Alva Edison and that of Nikola Tesla. In addition, the film knows how to bring to the fore such suggestive ideas as the depiction of magic in search of its meaning in science.

“The Gospel According to Matthew”

10 p.m., Movistar Classics

The Gospel of Matthew by Pier Paolo Pasolini

Il Vangelo Secondo Matteo. Italy-France, 1964 (130 minutes). Director: Pier Paolo Pasolini. Artists: Enrique Irazoqui, Margherita Caruso.

The life of Jesus Christ, told with absolute visual nudity, with the sincerity and commitment of an artist tackling a story that is no stranger to him. The Marxist Pasolini has been the filmmaker of the disinherited since Accatone and Mamma Roma and in this masterpiece he creates an ascetic and human story that revolves around injustice and oppression. And so a complex and reflective model of cinema emerges, which shines under the appearance of the greatest simplicity. Essential.

The latest facts about Tutankhamun

10:30 p.m., DMAX

Tutankhamun: The Mystery of the Burnt Mummy, broadcast on DMAX

Tutankhamun appears in DMAX: The Mystery of the Burnt Mummy, appearing in the character of the so-called “Child King”. Faced with evidence of deficiencies in the mummification of Tutankhamun, various experts are analyzing the mystery of his death and approaching his figure, combining 3D graphics and tests as innovative as a virtual autopsy.

“TV Documents” focuses on the “Ku Klux Klan”

24.00, La 2

Ku Klux Klan report broadcast on Documentos TV on La 2

The Ku Klux Klan report, premiering tonight on Documentos TV, denounces the organization's 150 years of spreading terror across the United States. Throughout its brutal history, the Klan has associated itself with images including the Bible, the flag, the cross, and hoods to construct its image, and has disappeared and reappeared several times since its inception. The last time was in 2008, when Barack Obama became president and the number of groups promoting white supremacy skyrocketed. Trump's aggressive and populist speech has made him the latest idol of white supremacists.
