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.
