Filmmaker Pamela Yates directs this documentary that chronicles how her own 1983 film When the Mountains Tremble, which exposed Guatemala’s genocidal campaign against its own indigenous Mayan people, has become evidence in a war-crimes trial. As the case unfolds against a Guatemalan military official, Yates meets with Rigoberta Menchú, the Nobel Peace Prize-winning Mayan activist first brought to the world’s attention in Yates’s original film.
