Frontline will be hosting the Pamela Yates’s new film on Guatemala: ‘Granito: How To Nail A Dictator’ on the April the 1st 7pm. The film will be followed by a Q&A with Pamela Yates afterwards.
Following her groundbreaking documentary When the Mountains Tremble, director Pamela Yates revists the genocide of the Mayan people in Guatemala that took place almost a quarter of a century ago as, for the first time, indictments are called against the perpetrators.
Weaving together archival footage from her first film with modern interviews and shedding a deeper light on the disruption caused to the Mayan community in Guatemala, Granito highlights the inherent struggle to bring justice to light after years of silence.
From Nobel Laureates to the military dictator responsible for the tragedy, Granito interviews the whole spectrum of people involved in the conflict to answer the question of what really happened in the mountains of Guatemala.
