500 Years

500 YEARS tells the epic story that led Guatemala to a tipping point in their history, from the genocide trial of former dictator General Ríos Montt to the popular movement that toppled sitting President Otto Pérez Molina. Focusing on universal themes of justice, racism, power and corruption, 500 YEARS tells the story from the perspective of the majority indigenous Mayan population in Guatemala, and explores their struggles in the country’s growing fight against impunity.
