"This is not the last gasp of guerrilla resistance in Latin America. What you see here is not communism or socialism or anarchism. This is something you have never before in your life imagined. . . this is the Truth."

It is New Year's night 1994, the day the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) comes into effect. To the Mayan Indian communities in the Lacandon Jungle of Southeastern Mexico, NAFTA symbolizes the culmination of over 500 years of exploitation. That night, 2,000 Indian soldiers occupy several cities in the state of Chiapas and declare political and economic independence. They call themselves the Zapatista National Liberation Army (EZLN).

Zapatista is the definitve look at the civil war in Mexico. The product of over two years of filming and research, it combines first hand footage with extensive interviews and testimonies from campesinos, rebel leaders, activists and intellectuals working on both sides of the border. Zapatista locates the struggle in a global and historical context, revealing the ways in which Zapatismogrows out of 500 years of indigenous resistance and tracing the connections the Zapatistas have made to movements around the world.

1998, 56 minutes.
