Finding Oscar - Trailer


“Finding Oscar,” a feature length documentary, traces the pursuit for justice in the case of the Dos Erres massacre in Guatemala in 1982. The search leads to the trail of two little boys, Oscar and Ramiro, who were abducted during the slaughter and raised by some of the same soldiers who murdered their families. These boys offer the only living evidence tying the Guatemalan government to the massacre. 100 minutes. Spanish with English subtitles.

Event Description

The film screening will be followed by a discussion featuring director Ryan Suffern, Oscar Ramirez’s lawyer Scott Greathead, and Professor Beatriz Manz of the Department of Ethnic Studies and Geography.

"The murderous civil right violations of one of Guatemala's many military regimes are given an intimately human context in Finding Oscar."
