On Friday May 10th 2013 a Guatemalan court found Efrain Rios Montt, the ex-president of Guatemala guilty of genocide and crimes against humanity for actions he authorized while commander of the Guatemalan military in the early 1980s. It was the first time that a head of state was found guilty of such crimes by a court in his own country. While the echoes of jubilation are still resounding in the mountain villages of the small Central American country, it was hardly covered beyond a mere mention by the U.S. media. Behind the triumphal results there lies a longer, deeper, fascinating story of the international team that spent years painstakingly putting together the case that made it all possible. “GRANITO: How To Nail A Dictator” tells that story. Part political thriller, part memoir, Producer/Director/Narrator Pamela Yates transports us back in time through a riveting, haunting tale of genocide and returns to the present with a cast of characters joined by destiny and the quest to bring a malevolent dictator to justice.
