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.
