FILM: The Sixth Sun
The Sixth Sun is a compilation video of the early years of the Zapatista uprising in Mexico.
Director Saul Landau and famed cinematographer Haskell Wexler assembled a great mixture of original and borrowed footage to tell the unforeseen January 1, 1994 indigenous-led Zapatista uprising in Chiapas, Mexico.

The Sixth Sun includes interviews with key protagonists in the uprising and the aftermath as well, including Bishop Samuel Ruiz, Gloria Benavides (Comandante Elisa), Zapatista rank-n-file members and anti-Zapatistas landowners.
The Sixth Sun is in English and Spanish with English subtitles and runs 56 mins.
Sponsored by the Chiapas Support Committee
