Doc: Burden of Peace

How do you bring peace and security to a small country where every day more than 20 people are murdered? Claudia Paz y Paz, Guatemala’s first female Attorney General, is engaged in a struggle for justice in one of the most dangerous countries in the world.

Pay y Paz tackles corruption, drug gangs and impunity and does what everyone considered impossible: she brings former dictator, Efraín Ríos Montt, to trial. With this she writes world history, but opposition is rapidly growing…

The Dutch documentary makers Joey Boink and Sander Wirken follow Claudia Paz y Paz from her first day at the public prosecutor’s office in 2010 until her dismissal in 2014.

Movies that Matter + extra’s

This documentary film we present to you in cooperation with Movies that Matter. And even better: before screening you can enjoy a short extra! Before the film starts there will be an interview with the director of the film, Joey Boink. Boink has worked and lived in Guatemala before. He made the film together with Sander Wirken who is specialized in the genocide of Guatemala.
