In Production

A celebration of the death of the Aguascalientes and the birth of the Caracoles and the Good Government Assemblies.

Synopsis

Produced in August 2003 in the communities of Oventik and Morelia by 18 Zapatista video makers, Caracoles is a celebration of the death of the Aguascalientes and the birth of the Caracoles and the Good Government Assemblies. Various members of the Zapatista leadership discuss how these changes will affect internal political and economic processes, gender relations, and their relationship to international civil society. The video is an open call to join with the Zapatista communities in their struggle for recognition of their autonomy and in their fight against neo-liberal economic policies and globalization.
