GRANITO: How to Nail a Dictator
Dir. Pamela Yates | 103min | Doc | Not Rated | US | 2011

Produced by Paco de OnÍs
edited by Peter Kinoy

Sometimes a film makes history; it doesn't just document it. So it is with Granito: How to
Nail a Dictator", the astonishing new film by Pamela Yates. Part political thriller, part
memoir, Yates transports us back in time through a riveting, haunting tale of genocide and
returns to the present with a cast of characters joined by destiny and the quest to bring a
malevolent dictator to justice.
As if a watchful Maya god were weaving back together threads of a story unraveled by the
passage of time, forgotten by most, our characters become integral to the overarching
narrative of wrongs done and justice sought that they have pieced together, each adding their
granito, their tiny grain of sand, to the epic tale.
