Film & Discussion: The Sixth Sun-Mayan Uprising in Chiapas
Award-winning Bay Area filmmaker Saul Landau will present his film.
The documentary contains rare footage from the 1994 peasant uprising and in-depth interviews with Subcomandante Marcos, the ski-masked "poet-warrior."
Guest speaker Maryann Tenuto of the Chiapas Support Committee, an expert on Chiapas and its autonomous Zapatista communities, will provide a brief historical overview of the nineteen years since the uprising and give an update on the Zapatistas' current situation.
The venue is wheelchair accessible. A $5-10 donation is suggested. No one will be turned away for lack of funds.
