About the Film + Photo Exhibition + Q & A Session

¡Viva México!  -- In 2006, Subcommandante Marcos, along with a group of other Zapatistas and members of the alternative media travelled around Mexico visiting communities where people are living out daily, active struggles of resistance. Communities fighting for a better Mexico and an alternative world with dignity and justice for all. This tour created connections between the Zapatistas and the diverse social movements, (small-scale farmers, workers, environmentalists, and more), organising up and down the country. This event is a telling of those experiences through images, film and question and answer.

Photo Exhibition by the Collective La Otra Mirada -- This exhibition is the result of a collective input of many photographers from alternative media that covered the journey of The Other Campaign in Mexico. The exhibition captures images from all over Mexico and describes the current social and political state of affairs in Mexico by focusing on marginalised groups and individuals that are organizing themselves to resist oppression.

Adolfo López, member of the Colective La Otra Mirada, and Nicolás Défossé, the film director, will hold a Q&A session after the film.


London is the first stop of a UK-wide tour for Nico and Alfredo. Catch them in another city if you miss them in London.
