(A Little Bit of So Much Truth)
July 2007 – Corrugated Films writes: In the summer of 2006, a broad-based, non-violent, popular uprising exploded in the southern 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.
A Little Bit of So Much Truth captures the unprecedented media phenomenon that emerged when 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.
From the producer of Granito de Arena and This is What Democracy Looks Like, in collaboration with Oaxacan media collective Mal de Ojo TV, comes this intimate, breathtaking account of the revolution that was televised and that gave new meaning to the phrase “Be the Media.”
The estimated release date for the complete DVD, with multiple subtitle options, is September, 2007. Please visit the Contact Us page if you would like to receive an email when the film is done or if you would like to plan a screening of the film in your community!
