Documentary film of the formation and activities of the
EZLN, a
band of Mexican guerrilla insurrectionists called
Zapatistas,
who occupied the Chiapas region of Southeast Mexico in
January, 1994. This film chronicles the first moments of the
peasant uprising through the Convencion Nacional Democratica
sponsored by the EZLN in August 6-9, 1994 and held in a
freshly made clearing hewn out of the jungle and
attended by
over 6,000 delegates from all over Mexico.

Good luck!
