Profits from sales go towards direct solidarity work with the Zapatista communities. ZAPATISTA WOMEN is about the indigenous women soldiers of the EZLN.

Produced in 1994, in spanish with english subtitles and is 30 minutes. MARCOS: WORD & HISTORY is a long and interesting interview with the military chief and spokesperson of the EZLN, Subcommander Marcos. In this he describes in detail the history of the EZLN; its founding, development and growth, relationship to the indigenous communities, and the events relating to the January 1st, 1994 insurrection. He also discusses in detail the events since the uprising, such as the peace negotiations, the mobilisation and development of civil society, the National Democratic Convention (CND), the Feb. 1995 Mexican military offensive, and the national "Consulta". He also dicusses his views of the left (including anarchism), and the type of world they are fighting for. Produced in 1995, in spanish with english subtitles and 90 minutes.
