Guatemala - Death and Hope
Österreich für Guatemala
During more than 30 years of civil war in Guatemala, over 200,000 people died and around a million were forced to flee to neighbouring countries.
Even today, families are continuing to search for their loved ones, supported by a small army of scientists who are investigating and cataloguing hundreds of mass graves. This forensic anthropology project may be the world's largest but the country's former dictators are not interested in reexamining the past and often threaten the people involved - even with death. This film tells their stories.
