Emiliano Zapata's women

Compañía Nacional de Teatro de México, Mexico City, Mexico

Director: Conchi León

In Spanish, with English and Hungarian subtitles

1 hours 20 minutes, without breaks.

Emiliano Zapata´s Women (Las mujeres de Emiliano) is a playful project that involves fictional women around this Mexican Revolution hero. Emiliano Zapata´s image is built (or destroyed) via a series of feminine voices that assuredly knew him: the midwife who attended his birth, his mother, his sister, and one of his lovers; all of them painting an intimate image of “The Atilla of the South”. A wide range of other characters from the authorities who persecuted the caudillo, his comrades-in-arms, and Emiliano Zapata himself are invited, too.
