This past December and January, Pan Left video producer Jason Aragón visited Chiapas, Mexico with muralist and print maker Santiago “Mazatl” Armengod from Just Seeds artist cooperative. This journey was in an effort to document and experience Santiago’s work and become introduced to communities in the fight for autonomy and justice.
It was at this critical time that new energy and attention was being focused toward indigenous groups in this area. Many inspiring events were happening while Aragón and Armengod were there. Most notable was the event of Zapatistas that took over cities in Chiapas on December 21, 2012 in a silent mobilization and made new headlines across the world.
Join us to see video and listen to the experiences from Jason that show how making art and self-determination in communities are intertwined in a place that is keeping true to the principles of Tierra y Libertad, Land and Freedom.
