"Resist To Exist" is a short doc, which illustrates how the Cucapa, an indigenous people from the community of El Mayor, Baja California, struggle to survive after the Colorado River disappeared and after the Mexican govt. has taken away their right to fish in the sea. A fishing community by tradition for the thousands of years, the Cucapa now face a life without water or food. However, their decision to continue as a people, heirs of an ancient culture, has led them to find various avenues to defend their rights. The Other Campaign and the Sixth Delegation of the EZLN, have committed themselves to this struggle in defense of the life, the culture and the nature of the Cucapa and Kiliwa people with the establishment of an encampment on indigenous,
Baja Californian territory ( from feb. to april 2007).

Produced by The Video Commisiion of la Otra en el Otro Lado Mexico 2007


" The Battle of Mexico City" is the document of Rage Against The
Machine at the height of their musical and political force just prior
to their initial disbanding, and now a perfect prelude to their
reunion show in SF on the Rock The Bells Tour with Wu Tang Clan on Aug.18th. Directed by Joe DeMaio.
