Part 3 of the Resistance Saga
The UK Premiere of the final searing film in Pamela Yates’ epic Guatemala trilogy, 500 Years explores the war crimes trial of General Ríos Montt and the toppling of corrupt president Otto Pérez Molina.
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 1982, Pamela Yates was a novice documentary maker setting out to tell the story of the oppression of the indigenous people of Guatemala. She could not have imagined that thirty years later this extraordinary film would become part of the trial that indicted Guatemalan dictator Ríos Montt.
For the first time ever, the three extraordinary films in Pamela Yates' epic saga covering 35 years of Mayan resistance in Guatemala will be shown together.
Our special Trilogy tickets and the 500 Years screening have now SOLD OUT. But a number of £5 tickets are still available for When the Mountains Tremble and Granito: How To Nail a Dictator.
