Film Screening and Discussion
In 1982 during Guatemala’s brutal civil war, an elite group of soldiers invaded the village of Dos Erres and slaughtered more than 200 men, women, and children. Two small boys survived and were raised by two of the commandos involved in the massacre. Finding Oscar is a documentary that tells their stories and the efforts of human rights workers, forensic anthropologists, Guatemalan prosecutors, and US officials to seek justice for the victims of Dos Erres.
