Can a film tip the scales of justice in Guatemala?
Pamela Yate's documentary Granito is a sequel to When the Mountains Tremble. The generals of the brutal military dictatorship in Guatemala that appear in When the Mountains Tremble are now being charged with genocide for their role in the deaths of 200,000 mostly Mayan peasants. Yates was asked to go back into all her outtakes from the previous film to be used as forensic evidence in the criminal case against the generals. An epic investigative story, the main characters sift for clues and documentation buried in film and print archives, unlocking the past to bring justice in present day Guatemala.
