Description: In early 2001, Spanish feature filmmaker Fernando Leon de Aranoa visited the Mexican village of Noria as it was preparing a final celebration to send off the Chiapas region's infamous Zapatista guerrillas on a protest march to the nation's capital of Mexico City. His resulting film, Caminantes (Walkers), documents the relationships and interactions between the Zapatistas and the indigenous people they protect and represent. As the villagers build a stage for the evening's festivities, director de Aranoa interviews a number of the town's celebrants, as well as the famed and revered Zapatista spokesman identified only as Subcomandante Marcos. Later, after the revelries and speeches have ended, the Zapatistas move on to Mexico City, bolstered by the enthusiasm and support from the scores of other peasants they encounter along the way. Caminantes was selected for inclusion at the 2002 Los Angeles Latino Film Festival, as well as that year's Sundance Film Festival.~ Ryan Shriver, All Movie Guide
