Ramón Aupart Cisneros, a director of cinematography, documentary filmmaker and student of the Mexican Revolution, has died, the National Culture and Arts Council, or Conaculta, said.

Aupart Cisneros, who made 11 documentaries about the Mexican Revolution, died on Friday in Mexico City.

The filmmaker dedicated his life to documenting Mexico's social movements since 1968.

"La Decena Tragica" (2008), one of his best-known works, tells the story of the armed movement that started in 1913 to overthrow President Francisco I. Madero.

"I am saddened by the death of Ramón Aupart, a documentary filmmaker who did an exceptional series about the Decena Tragica," Conaculta chairman Rafael Tovar y de Teresa said in a Twitter post.

Aupart Cisneros began his film career as an assistant editor at the age of 15, and his first documentary was the short "Ariel Limon" (1976).

Over his nearly 50-year career, Aupart Cisneros edited more than 100 films, including "Actas de Marusia" (1973) and "El recurso del metodo" (1978) by Chilean director Miguel Littin, as well as Mexican director Leobardo Lopez Arretche's "El grito" (1970), which tells the story of the 1968 Mexican student movement.

Aupart Cisneros taught film editing at the Centro Universitario de Estudios Cinematograficos from 1971 to 2001, when he retired.

He won the Ariel prize for best film editing for "Actas de Marusia" in 1976 and for "Ulama, el juego de la vida y la muerte" in 1988. EFE.
