Corazon del Tiempo (Heart of Time) is a film about love in the time of Zapatista Resistance. Things get complicated when Sonia, a Zapatista civilian supporter living in an autonomous community, falls in love with Julio, an insurgente (rebel fighter), because she is already promised to Miguel, a young community leader. The film shows how the community deals with this romantic dilemma. Spanish with English subtitles.
Corazón del Tiempo was filmed in a Zapatista community in the heart of the Lacandón Jungle of Chiapas, Mexico. The actors are all non-professional Zapatista actors who uncovered their faces and opened their communities for the world to see.
