Screening of GRANITO

http://www.mohistory.org/node/7426

 

A story of destinies joined by Guatemala's past, and how a documentary film intertwined with a nation's turbulent history emerges as an active player in the present. Each of the five main characters whose destinies collide in Granito is connected by the Guatemala of 1982, then engulfed in a war where a genocidal "scorched earth" campaign by the military exterminated nearly 200,000 Maya people.

Presented in conjunction with the St. Louis Inter-Faith Committee on Latin America, Nine Network, and Welcoming Missouri, a project of Missouri Immigrant and Refugee Advocates.

    I think my expectations were high because I just heard a great story about the Guatamela genocide on This American Life. This documentary was disappointing. It was more about the filmmaker than the victims of this horrible time.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
