500 YEARS

In the final film of her acclaimed Guatemalan trilogy, Pamela Yates (GRANITO, WHEN THE MOUNTAINS TREMBLE) chronicles the struggle of the country's indigenous Mayan population to hold their government accountable for a history of racism, corruption and genocide. Covering the recent trial of the former president Rios Montt and the subsequent uprising against then-sitting president Otto Perez Molina, the film focuses not only on historical injustices, but also highlights how modern resistance movements have given the Mayan people new hope in their centuries-old fight for justice and equal rights.
