Zapatista Film: Heart of Time (Corazón del tiempo)


Screening at La Palma Taquería, 4171 Macarthur Blvd., Oakland

One Night Only!

Corazón del Tiempo (Heart of Time) is a film about love in the time of Zapatista Resistance. Things get complicated when Sonia, a Zapatista civilian supporter living in an autonomous community, falls in love with Julio, an insurgente (rebel fighter), because she is already promised to Miguel, a young community leader. The film shows how the community deals with this romantic dilemma. In Spanish with English subtitles. 

Corazón del Tiempo was filmed in Zapatista communities in the heart of the Lacandón Jungle of Chiapas, Mexico. The actors are all non-professional Zapatista actors who uncovered their faces and opened their communities for the world to see, much as they are doing with the Little Zapatista Schools (Escuelitas zapatistas). We’ll have a brief report on the Escuelitas from several folks who participated. Come at 7 PM and grab a bite to eat, hear the report and listen to music until we show the film outdoors around 8:30 PM. Bring warm clothes or a blanket for outdoors. Admission is FREE, but we’ll accept and appreciate donations! Lots of new artesianía from Chiapas! Come and enjoy the party.
