    Sad to see that the subject of the crucial US support for this Guatemalan genocide isn't even mentioned or hinted at in this trailer. CIA overthrew a reformist government in Guatemala in 1954 and helped install a military dictatorship. Decades of US-supported horror followed. What I just wrote isn't even controversial.

    Can you imagine the people that killed someone and investigating themselves weren't nice to the people reporting on them. Absolutely reprehensible!

    El 16 de diciembre de 2020 fue transmitido en Guatemala este documental por HBO, excelente producción, hubiese sido interesante conocer el punto de vista de quienes en aquel entonces estaban en el gobierno, Estado Mayor Presidencial, Ministerio de Gobernación, Presidencia, etc., lamentablemente algunos de los autores intelectuales aún andan por ahí impunes y saben que la justicia jamás los alcanzará otros ya fallecieron.

    Qué triste ver que vidas tan valiosas se pierdan de ésta manera. La iglesia en muchas veces es la voz del pueblo y los gobiernos corruptos les molesta cuándo les comienzan a andar de cerca sus pasos . Admiro la valentía que tienen muchos guatemaltecos por la lucha que han emprendido.
