A Massacre Foretold

Chronicles the historic events surrounding the 1997 massacre of 45 pacifist supporters of the Zapatista Army of National Liberation who were murdered while seeking refuge in a church. Also looks at the 1994 emergence of the Zapatistas, the Mexican army's attacks on rural peasant communities -- involving destruction of homes, forced displacement of entire communities, and "disappearances" and murders meant to terrorize the indigenous population -- and government "negotiations" with the Zapatistas. Directed & produced by Nick Higgins. 2007. 58 min.
