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. The Dos Erres massacre was one of more than 600 documented massacres committed during a genocidal campaign by the Guatemalan military. Finding Oscar is a documentary that tells the stories of victims and survivors, and their tireless efforts to seek justice.
