La Marcha, a new photography exhibit that celebrates the Zapatistas march on Mexico City, opens at Urban Sanctuary in Boyle Heights tonight. In 2001, 24 Zapatista rebel leaders demanded greater political autonomy for indigenous peoples. Two LA photographers, B+ and Coleman, together known as Mochilla, documented the last leg of the rebel leaders’ journey. The reception tonight is from 7 pm to midnight, and the exhibition runs through April 6. FILM
There’s a special preview screening this weekend for Even the Rain at the Egyptian, with Gael García Bernal as an idealistic director of a Spanish film crew and his cynical producer (Luis Tosar) who come to Bolivia to “make a revisionist epic about the conquest of Latin America - on the cheap.” But the film crew becomes enmeshed in local politics and water control at the hands of multi-national corporations. The director and producer make unexpected emotional journeys in opposite directions. 7:30 pm. $11.

Inle, a très cool-sounding exhibit that opens at Gallery1988: Melrosetonight. Curated by Greg 'Craola' Simkins, more than 100 artists interpret Black Rabbit of Inlé, the anti-hero bunny from Richard Adam's Watership Down. Opening reception: 7-10pm

Native Voices at the Autry, America’s leading Native American theater company, presents a half-price preview of The Frybread Queen tonight at 8 pm. In the play, three generations of Indian women come together for the funeral of a beloved son. “The collision of personalities forces them to confront long-simmering tensions that threaten to tear them apart. This quietly poetic drama has all the haunting qualities of a Chekhovian tragicomedy—Navajo style!” Free for Autry members/$10 general admission/$5 students and seniors. If you can't make the preview, the production runs through March 27 at the Autry Museum.
