Land Belongs to those Who Work It by The Chiapas Media Project
Land ownership is considered in this documentary about workers in rural Chiapas, Mexico. Testimonials and documentary footage dramatize a land conflict between indigenous workers and the state government of Chiapas. A meeting between Zapatista authorities and Mexican government functionaries offers a critical look at the practical implications of so-called ecotourism. Masked in affiliation with the revolutionary EZLN organization, the workers stand-up to government agents who visit their community. Using techniques of agitprop, the video illustrates EZLN positions.
