Starting from 2004 a series of films showing Mexic military maneuvers began to find their way into the hands of authorities governing the islands in the Taino Sea. At first it was assumed these were smuggled aboard Wessexian or Byzantine freighters by dissidents eager to help Mexica's enemies however it is now generally believed that these films are pure propaganda, distributed internally to promote nationalism (or at least a Nahuatl version of it) or leaked abroad to intimidate or threaten its neighbours. A total of 43 separate films are now documented.
It is unknown if Mexica has a fledgling non-military film industry. The films are presented on a different style of film stock and have a slightly higher frame rate than the rest of the world uses, meaning only modified projectors can play these.
The films are officially numbered only by the date of recovery, however many have been given unofficial names. The following are some of the most noteworthy:
- 06/06/2004 #1
The first recognised Mexic propaganda film to appear in the Taino islands. It was handed over to Austrian authorities in the King Rudolph Islands in June 2004. The 60-second long film showing a small army platoon practise range firing was ignored for a year as it was assumed to be a work of fiction, only coming to the attention of Austrian military intelligence after a second and third one with similar content appeared in Quisqueyanos.
- 31/05/2010 Train
Anonymously handed into a Coabanan military depot in May 2010. The 32-second film shows a Jaguar army platoon disembarking from a train at an unnamed station. The men are unremarkable but the train is clearly armoured, vastly powerful and has a car with a large barrelled artillery piece. Although similar armoured trains are in service in both the Kalmar and Polish armies, this was assumed beyond Mexic engineering.
- 05/08/2010 The March
Brought to the French Port Authority on Xaymaca in August 2010, this 14-minute film shows an unbroken line of infantry marching past a fixed camera. The shot is fixed, showing a column about 35 men wide march down a straight road. The film has been analysed in detail and camera trickery has been ruled out by several experts. If correct the film shows some 58,000 men march past. This is more than most Leifian nations can raise in total.
- 26/04/2012 The Fog
Confiscated by Guyanese police in April 2012, this two and a half minute film shows the Mexic army firing an artillery shell at an unnamed village. The shell detonates in the air blanketing the village in a thick 'fog'. The next shot shows dead farm animals lying in the streets. It is assumed from this that the Mexic have access to chemical weapons similar to mustard gas.
