Zapatista Moon narrates one man’s journey in Chiapas as he interacts with a historic Zapatista women’s gathering in 2007, questions men’s role and feels the impact of Zapatismo on the on-going struggle for gender justice & equity.

The film-showing will be followed by a roundtable of women who will review the film and discuss the dimensions of the struggle for women-based power and leadership of our movements and communities and the struggle to forge new relationships based on gender justice and equity.

The film highlights the December 2007 Meeting of Zapatista Women with the Women of the World. Our focus on indigenous women coincides with the current independent presidential candidacy of an indigenous woman on behalf of the Indigenous Governing Council, María de Jesús Patricio Martínez, Marichuy.
