Grassroots Cinema: Join NISGUA this summer by hosting a community screening of 500 Years!

This summer, join NISGUA activists across the country in advancing conversations about international movements for social and environmental justice! We’re inviting our network to grow our capacity for cross-border solidarity by hosting a documentary film screening and discussion in their community. Documentary filmmaker and NISGUA supporter Pamela Yates has generously offered us her latest film, 500 Years, to use as a tool for community education and grassroots action. Join us! 

About the film:

The film explores more than five centuries of indigenous survival and resistance in Guatemala, drawing connections between the Spanish Conquest, U.S.-funded state violence, and transnational resource extraction. (Trailer below).

About the campaign:

NISGUA staff will support hosts in planning and pulling off their film screening. As a host, you’ll receive: prompts and talking points to guide discussion of the film; updates from NISGUA partners about key struggles highlighted in the film; materials to support movie-goers in taking action in solidarity with Guatemalan activists; and grassroots fundraising support. Email david@nisgua.org to express interest or hear more!
