In the Mexican Revolution of 1910, Emiliano Zapata
led an army composed of peasants & indigenous people.
Some participants and observers, now aged 95-110,
still live in Southern Mexico, and still remember the
causes & passions that animated the politics of their
younger days. In this film, these lively survivors
look back at the Revolution, its outcome, & its legacy.
They show us how much—or how little—their lives have
changed. They share not only their memories but also
their thoughts about present-day agrarian & ecological
challenges, as well as their views on the prospects for
peace, prosperity, & justice in the Mexico they leave for
Joining us will be activist

from a visit with today's Zapatistas in Chiapas.
