Trailer: "Granito: How To Nail A Dictator"
Part political thriller, part memoir, GRANITO shadows a haunting crime across four decades. As activists, experts and lawyers build an international human rights case against a Guatemalan military dictator, Pamela Yates’s 1982 film When the Mountains Tremble emerges as forensic evidence—a witness to the genocide it documented. Recording the search for truth and accountability, her latest work captures the arc of history as it bends towards justice.
New York Premiere At The IFC Center
Presented in association with WITNESS, "Granito: How To Nail A Dictator" had its world premiere at Sundance 2011. It is now poised to kick off its independent Oscar qualification theatrical run in New York, at the IFC Center in Greenwich Village on September 14 for an exclusive 9-day run ending September 22.
This indie Oscar run was funded through a successful Kickstarter campaign in March, so this is an exciting and long-awaited moment for all Granito fans. If you're not already a fan, don't miss Granito and come see how you can be the change!
