Grain of Sand (Granito de Arena)
An award-winning, bi-lingual film
For more than 20 years, global economic forces have been dismantling public education in Mexico, but always in the constant shadow of popular resistance. ‘Grain of Sand’ is the story of that resistance – the story of hundreds of thousands of public schoolteachers whose grassroots, non-violent movement took Mexico by surprise and who have endured brutal repression in their 25-year struggle to defend public education, from Mexico City to Oaxaca. Come learn about the roots of the current turmoil in Oaxaca, where teachers are leaders under deadly attack. Produced by Corrugated Films: www.corrugated.org
