“A Hymn to the Power of Filmmaking”

This really captures the essence of “Granito: How To Nail A Dictator”: “‘Granito'” is remarkable for allowing two intertwined stories, one global and the other personal, to unfold together.  It presents the hurricane of violence that enveloped Guatemala 25 years ago not just as a historical horror, but as a lens through which the filmmaker examines herself, her values, and her relationship to her art.  Subtle, provocative, and deeply original, it is a hymn to both the nobility of Guatemalans and the power of filmmaking.”

This great quote came from Stephen Kinzer, co-author of “Bitter Fruit: The Story of the American Coup in Guatemala”, an inspiration for the making of “When the Mountains Tremble”, the prequel to “Granito”.
