Synopsis

Part political thriller, part memoir, Granito shadows a haunting crime across four decades. As activists, experts and lawyers build an international human rights case against a Guatemalan military dictator, Pamela Yates’s 1982 film When the Mountains Tremble emerges as forensic evidence—a witness to the genocide it documented. Recording the search for truth and accountability, her latest work captures the arc of history as it bends towards justice.
