A classic documentary on war and social revolution in Guatemala, which vigorously and persuasively describes the struggle of the largely indigenous peasantry against a legacy of state and foreign oppression.
Centered on the experiences of Nobel Peace Laureate Rigoberta Menchú, a Maya K’iche indigenous leader, the film interweaves interviews, re-enactments, and stunning footage shot at great hazard into a wide-ranging yet cohesive epic canvas of the Guatemalan struggle.
