Michigan Room of the Michigan League

The film is a classic 1983 human rights documentary on the war between the Guatemalan military and the Mayan population, with firsthand accounts by Nobel Peace Prize winner Rigoberta Menchu. Even though it came out almost two decades ago, the issues covered in the film are still relevant to contemporary human rights issues. When The Mountains Tremble won the Special Jury Award at the Sundance Film Festival, the Blue Ribbon Award at the American Film Festival, and the Grand Coral Award/Best North American Documentary at the Havana Film Festival. It is 83 minutes. This event is free and open to the public.
