Un Poquito de Tanta Verdad
Wednesday, February 11 • 6 pm
Film Screening and Discussion/MultiCultural Center Theater

Un Poquito de Tanta Verdad (A Little Bit of So Much Truth) captures the unprecedented media phenomenon that emerged when tens of thousands of school teachers, housewives, indigenous communities, health workers, farmers, and students took 14 radio stations and one TV station into their own hands, using them to organize, mobilize, and ultimately defend their grassroots struggle for social, cultural, and economic justice. Filmmaker Jill Freidberg will host a brief discussion and Q and A after the film. Directed by Jill Freidberg, 90 minutes, 2008, Oaxaca.
