Liberated Lens Film Collective and Chiapas Support Committee presents a program of documentary shorts on the anti-capitalist Resistance in Southern Mexico.
The Resistance shares many of the principles and goals of the Zapatistas movement: autonomy from the capitalist economy, communalist self-government rooted in indigenous traditions, an end to the subordination of women, respect for the natural world. Indigenous women are at the forefront of many of these ongoing struggles.

Experimental documentary by Ronyk and Thomas John
The daily life of Maya poet Angelina Suyul is portrayed using an unconventional audiovisual language that approaches both the personality and identity of its female protagonist as well as the meanings of her poetry.

The screening will be followed by Q and A with the filmmakers and a discussion on the current situation in Chiapas with members of the Chiapas Support Committee.

Chiapas Support Committee will be selling crafts by Zapatista artisans. Profits from the sales, and half of the donations at the door, will go towards a fund to build schools in Zapatista territory. For more info on this project and for updated information on Zapatistas, see https://chiapas-support.org/


$5 suggested donation- no one turned away for lack of funds--- free popcorn.

Doors open at 4:30, films start at 5pm.
