Mission Cultural Center for Latino Arts hosts the San Francisco premiere of the new documentary, "A Little Bit of So Much Truth."
From the award-winning producer of "Granito de Arena," and "This is What Democracy Looks Like," comes this breath-taking, intimate account of the 2006 uprising, in Oaxaca, Mexico, during which tens of thousands of protestors made history by occupying dozens of radio stations, and one television station, using them to organize, mobilize, and defend their non-violent struggle for social, economic, and cultural justice.
Filmmaker, Jill Freidberg, will attend the free screening and participate in a post-screening Q & A.
A Little Bit of So Much Truth (Un Poquito de Tanta Verdad)
In the summer of 2006, a non-violent, popular uprising exploded in the Mexican state of Oaxaca. Some compared it to the Paris Commune, while others called it the first Latin American revolution of the 21st century.
But it was the people’s use of the media that truly made history in Oaxaca.
Un Poquito de Tanta Verdad captures the unprecedented phenomenon that emerged when tens of thousands of schoolteachers, housewives, farmers, health workers, and students took over 14 radio stations and one TV station, using them to organize, mobilize, and ultimately defend their grassroots struggle for social, cultural, and economic justice.
From the award-winning producer of "This is What Democracy Looks Like" and "Granito de Arena," comes this breathtaking, intimate account of the revolution that WAS televised.
