SGS Summer Film Festival: Corazón del tiempo (Heart of time)

As the Zapatista movement takes hold and government troops encroach on the Mexican state of Chiapas, a young local named Sonia has her own problems: she is having second thoughts about her upcoming wedding. She’s engaged, her dowry of a cow already spent. But after an encounter in the forest with Julio, one of the Zapatista rebels, she has fallen in love, and she tells her father the marriage is off, thereby upending the stability of the indigenous community in which she lives and threatening the safety of the rebels. Directed by Alberto Cortés (2009). 
Q&A to follow with Associate Director of the Center for Latin American Studies Elizabeth Saenz-Ackermann and Adan Griego, Curator for Latin American, Iberian & Mexican American Collections at Stanford Libraries.
This film is part of the annual SGS Summer Film Festival running from July 13th to September 7th.
