KHRCA Film Screening: Granito

Wednesday, March 8th, 2017 at 12:10pm

Granito is a follow-up to her first feature-length film, When the Mountains Tremble (1984), which was one of the first documentary records of the Guatemalan Civil War. Granito reviews the struggle of the past thirty years to bring Guatemala's exdictator, Jose Efraín Ríos Montt, to justice for the genocide committed against Guatemala's Mayan population in the eighties. Flashing back and forth from the present to the past, Granito examines how Mountains served as a catalyst in bringing the genocide of the Guatemalan Mayans to the public consciousness,
which led to Mont's successful prosecution.

Released in 2011, 82 minutes.
