‘Helen’ – a story of persistence and justice

‘Helen’, by Agencia Ocote, is the audiovisual profile of one of the most important women in the fight for human rights in Guatemala and Central America: Helen Mack.

This documentary, by Julio Serrano Echeverría and Alejandra Gutiérrez Valdizán, builds a portrait of Mack, her work together with other human rights defenders, the legal system and the history of Guatemala; It seeks to explain how individual and collective efforts have promoted structural changes in the Guatemalan legal system and generated positive synergies for access to justice in the region.
