Panelists for Granito: How to Nail a Dictator

We are pleased to announce the following panelists for our January 24th screening of Granito:

• Omar Cano, Guatemalan journalist, President of ASOGUATE (Guatemalan Canadian Association).

Professor Carlota McAllister, Department of Anthropology, York University whose research focuses on the formation of political and moral agency in situations of violent conflict, particularly Guatemala.

Caren Weisbart, 2011 winner of CERLAC’s Baptista prize for her analysis of contemporary political economy and cultural politics in Guatemala.

Join us for this story of destinies joined by Guatemala’s past, and how a documentary film about a nation’s turbulent history emerges as an active player in the present offering evidence to put Efrain Rios Mont, former General and Guatemalan President, on trial for genocide.
