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.
