Corazón del Tiempo | Heart of Time is an award-winning feature 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. Spanish with English subtitles. It was filmed in a Zapatista community 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.
This event celebrates 25 years of Zapatista resistance and is a fundraiser for the La Garrucha Education Project that is building 4 autonomous middle schools in the Zapatista Caracol of La Garrucha. You can help Zapatista children receive an autonomous and decolonized education by attending this event! Food, Art and Zapatista artesanía (crafts) available. Artesanía from Zapatista women’s cooperatives make great Holiday gifts!
