Eva Vilamala | Guatemala, Spain 2014 | 60 Min. | OmeU
In Guatemala, the systematic repression of indigenous people led to a bloody armed conflict from 1960 to 1996 that left more than 200,000 dead, the majority of whom were Mayas. In an environment of fear and threats, the photographer Miquel Dewever-Plana worked for years documenting the exhumation process and gathering testimonies of numerous victims that are now part of the book The truth beneath the ground. Guatemala, the silenced genocide. Years later, he returned to the Mayan communities to deliver this book to those who had shared their stories. La Verdad bajo la Tierra is a touching film about collective memory, portraying the traumata of the genocide in a very haunting and sensitive way.
