When the Mountains Tremble
USA, 1983, 83 minutes
Director: Pamela Yates & Newton Thomas Sigel
In the early '80s, death squads roamed the Guatemalan countryside in a war against the unarmed indigenous population. Filmmakers Pamela Yates and Newton Thomas Sigel threw themselves into the task of bringing the crisis to the world's attention taking them into remote areas of the country where civilian massacres were taking place.

Latino Program along with Granito: How to Nail a Dictator (separate admissions)

Latino Program
When director Pamela Yates traveled to Guatemala in 1982 to film her award-winning documentary, When the Mountains Tremble, she did not know that hidden in that war was a calculated genocide Guatemalan military dictators were waging against the Maya people. Yates sees her new film Granito as "a second chance to help right a terrible wrong None of these war criminals have ever been brought to account, none punished. Today, more than 25 years later, When the Mountains Tremble and all the outtakes are being used as forensic evidence in an international case against two of the generals who appeared in my original film."
The Festival offers a rare chance to join director Pamela Yates and producer Paco de Onis following the screening of When the Mountains Tremble, to hear first-hand, "how I got started, the choices I made along the way, and how what I thought I was doing back then has a different meaning today." As Yates says, "It is really a film about the future. Granito is meant to inspire the next generation of young, engaged filmmakers to see and embrace the power of documentary filmmaking to make a difference."
