Pamela Yates returns to bloody Guatemala, where her When the Mountains Tremble (1984) helped alert the world to military persecution, even genocide. Mayan activist Rigoberta Menchú rose to a fame that led to her Nobel Prize. Yates revisits the endless struggle — a racial and class conflict — and her guilty thoughts about past inadequacies seem strained and rather distracting. Again, the heroes and villains are quite clear. 2011.
