De Alba returns to post

MEXICO CITY — Luz Fernandez de Alba has been named the new director of the Cineteca Nacional, Mexico’s national film archive.

A former topper of the National Fine Arts Institute, she replaces Alejandro Pelayo, who last week was appointed head of the troubled Mexican Film Institute.

From 1983-88, she oversaw the restoration of much of the archive and the reopening of its public library.
