Oaxacan Movie Showing at the Hollywood Theater Friday

Un Poquito de Tanta Verdad (A Little Bit of So Much Truth)
When: Friday April 11, 7-8:30pm
Where: Hollywood Theatre (4122 NE Sandy Blvd.)
From the producer of "This is What Democracy Looks Like" and "Granito de Areana", Q & A with the filmmaker after the showing.
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 90-minute documentary, 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.
