Documentary on Dos Erres

Friday, March 24th, 2017

The 1982 massacre at Dos Erres stands as one of the most horrifying chapters of Guatemala’s 36-year armed conflict. Two small boys survived. One, Oscar Ramirez, was raised by relatives of the soldier who killed his family.

The new documentary, Finding Oscar, recounts the search to locate the now-grown-man who is living in a small town outside Boston.

Warning: The movie trailer contains footage that is graphic, chilling, and real.

Directed by Ryan Suffern
Produced by Frank Marshall
Executive Produced by Steven Spielberg

Opening April 14th

The PBS News Hour has produced a very powerful news clip about the Rios Montt trial. In case you, like me, don’t ever watch TV, or missed the broadcast for some other reason, here’s the link:

Guatemala: Why We Cannot Turn Away.

That title says it all, don’t you think?
