Pamela Yates "GRANITO: How to Nail A Dictator"
Writers House, Rutgers Center for Digital Filmmaking,College Ave Campus Dean and IWL are bringing Pamela Yates to Rutgers on March 4th to show her important film Granito: How to Nail a Dictator.
Granito Film Summary: In a stunning milestone for justice in Central America, a Guatemalan court recently charged former dictator Efraín Rios Montt with genocide for his brutal war against the country’s Mayan people in the 1980s — and Pamela Yates’ 1983 documentary,When the Mountains Tremble, provided key evidence for bringing the indictment. Granito: How to Nail a Dictator tells the extraordinary story of how a film, aiding a new generation of human rights activists, became a granito — a tiny grain of sand — that helped tip the scales of justice.
