Granito: How to Nail a Dictator
Film screening and a special lecture with forensic anthropologist Dr. Fredy Peccerelli. A Guatemalan court charged former dictator Efraín Rios Montt with genocide for his brutal war against the country’s Mayan people in the 1980s. The documentary tells the 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. Film at 2:00 p.m., lecture at 5:00 p.m. 619-594-1103.
