About the Film:
From the front-lines of conflicts in Mexico, Argentina, South Africa, Palestine, Korea, and the North; from Seattle to Genova, and the War on Terror in New York, Afghanistan, and Iraq, The Fourth World War is the story of men and women around the world who resist being annihilated in this war.
While our airwaves are crowded with talk of a new world war, narrated by generals and filmed from the noses of bombs, the human story of this global conflict remains untold. The Fourth World War brings together the images and voices of the war on the ground. It is a story of a war without end and of those who resist.
The product of over two years of filming on the inside of movements on five continents, The Fourth World War is a film that would have been unimaginable at any other moment in history. Directed by the makers of This Is What Democracy Looks Like and Zapatista, produced through a global network of independent media and activist groups, it is a truly global film from our global movement.
Narrated by Michael Franti and Suheir Hammad
The Fourth World War is available on DVD at PM Press.
After the Screening: Afterwards, take part in a discussion about the EZLN, how it has unfolded over the last 26 years and how the Zapatista struggle relates and exists in solidarity with current global struggles today. We are currently living through a capitalist crisis and the people of the world have taken to the streets, from Hong Kong to Seattle, from Minneapolis to Palestine, from Oakland to DC to demand a world where many worlds fit.
