Part two of the Resistance Saga
"Sometimes a film makes history; it doesn't just document it."
When Pamela Yates made her first documentary, When the Mountains Tremble (1982), she could not have imagined that 30 years later it would be used as forensic evidence in the trial against Guatemalan ex-dictator Efraín Ríos Montt.
In a startling loop of time and memory, Granito: How to Nail a Dictator (2011) shows how a filmmaker's first documentary was instrumental in indicting Ríos Montt. 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 the quest to bring a malevolent dictator to justice.
