Viva Zapata!

- My president, our delegation...

- They've taken our land away.
- Who took your land away?

Children, when you make accusations,
be certain you have the facts.

- Who took your land away?
- The biggest state there.

- It's bigger than a kingdom.
- They've taken our valleys.

- Left us only the rocky hillside.
YOUNG MAN: We can't grow our corn.

OLD MAN: That's right.
There's a new fence with barbed wire.

We can't feed our cows.
Those three houses by that white rock?

- They burned those!
- They're planting sugarcane in our land.

Can you prove that you own this field?
Our village has owned this land
since before history.

We have a paper from the Spanish crown
and from the Mexican Republic.

Well, if this is true, you have no
problem. The courts will settle this.

I'll send you to my personal attorney.
But before you see him, I urge you
to find your boundary stones.

Check them against
your grants and titles.

Verify your boundaries. Facts. Facts!
Now, my children, I have
many other matters to attend to.

I've been your president for 34 years.
It's not an easy job being president.

GROUP: Thank you, my president.
- Thank you.
- Thank you, my president.

What's next?
We can't verify the boundaries,
my president.

The land is fenced and guarded.
They're planting sugar cane
in our cornfields.

- The courts...
- With your permission...

The courts?
