4 Agitators (2001)

This video documents El Teatro Campesino's play 4 Agitators. Adapted from Bertolt Brecht's Measures Taken, 4 Agitators follows four "camaradas" through their trial where they explain the killing of a young comrade, whose fervor takes precedent over his understanding of true revolution. This ETC production is true to Brecht's structure, but was renamed to appeal to modern political agitators. Adapted by Ruben Gonzalez and Lakin Valdez, the translation was updated by Kinan Valdez, with new songs written by Mino Valdez.
