K´ALTIK ZAPATISTA 
Spain, 2017

Director:  CUCHO RAMÍREZ

K´altik, in Tzotzil language, means milpa. The milpa is the traditional Mesoamerican cultivation system, based on the coexistence and mutual help of several plant species, which reinforce each other. The documentary K´altik Zapatista brings us to Chiapas, 22 years after the uprising of the Zapatista Army of National Liberation, to show us some results of the planting they did with their revolution. Through a journey through the most indigenous and most discriminated state of the 32 states of the country, we know several communities and groups that adhere to the Sixth Declaration of the Lacandon Jungle. People who adopted, continue and reinforce the Zapatista ideas, from their struggles and with their own forms. We also briefly review the history of the EZLN, checking the validity of its proposals.Producer: inquietaDoc
