There is one sold by Films for the Humanities by that title. This is
the description of it:

""This program provides a portrait of Cortez and his world -- the real
world and the imaginary one painted by theologians, mystics, imaginative
travelers, poets, and liars; of the New World as seen by a small number
of Spaniards; and of the civilizations of Mesoamerica before they were
'discovered' -- the world of the Mayas and Aztecs, the nature of Aztec
religion and politics. It describes the Battle of Mexico and explains
how and why Montezuma lost -- and why, today still, the descendants of
the Aztecs speak Nahuatl."--Container.
