13469350881346858785granito-940x390Granito: How to Nail a Dictator is a story of destinies joined by Guatemala’s past and of a documentary intertwined with a nation’s turbulent history that emerges as an active player in the present. The characters sift for clues buried in archives of mind and place and historical memory, seeking to uncover a narrative that could unlock the past and settle matters of life and death in the present. This film screening will be followed by a discussion with filmmakers Paco de Onis and Pamela Yates of Skylight Pictures.

Skylight Pictures produces artistic, challenging, and socially relevant media to strengthen human rights and the quest for justice. Since 1981, Skylight has combined the storytelling arts with human rights media strategies in the service of social movements. From the Peruvian Truth and Reconciliation Commission to the International Criminal Court, they tell stories that engage people through a human rights perspective.

Cosponsored by the Law School Human Rights Center, the Human Rights Program, the Moving Image Studies Graduate Minor, the Advocates for Human Rights, the MBSA Human Rights Committee, and the MSP Film Society.
