Go On! Free screening of ‘Granito: How to Nail a Dictator’ at Cardozo Law, March 24

Next Tuesday, March 24, from 6-8pm, the Cardozo Law Institute in Holocaust and Human Rights (CLIHHR), Latin American Law Students Association (LALSA), and Cardozo Students for Human Rights will present a free screening of the film Granito: How to Nail a Dictator, followed by a conversation with Peter Kinoy, Editorial Director of Skylight.

In 1982, Guatemala was engulfed in an armed conflict during which a genocidal “scorched earth” campaign by the military killed nearly 200,000 Maya people including 45,000 disappeared. Granito tells the extraordinary story of how a film became a “granito” – a tiny grain of sand – that helped tip the scales of justice.

The event, which is free and open to the public, takes place at Cardozo School of Law – 55 Fifth Avenue NY, NY 10003, Room 206. Light dinner will be served.

To attend, please RSVP to cardozo.clihhr@yu.edu.
