New Release - The Other Mexico

Choices is pleased to announce the release of our latest film, The Other Mexico which explores the growing political unrest in that country.

The Other Mexico focuses on that nation's poor and indigenous citizens who have no voice in the political system. Many of them have gravitated to the growing Zapatista movement led by its leader "Subcomandante Marcos". Some feel Marcos is a true folk hero while others view him as an opportunist seeking personal fame. Leading journalists and scholars debate the pros and cons of the movement as it tries to organize the country's disaffected before the 2006 Presidential election.

With gripping footage of police violence and in-depth interviews, The Other Mexico explores the growing political and socioeconomic crisis which will have far reaching effects for both Latin America and beyond.

The DVD will be released on July 1st, 2008 and will be priced at $99.95 (w/PPR rights). To learn more about this film and watch a clip, click here.
