Reviews and Responses

“A powerful and important presentation of the US government’s relationship to state terrorism in Guatemala. The film imaginatively draws us into a macabre world which belongs to both US and Guatemalan history. US citizens need to see this engaging documentary.”

DEBORAH LEVENSON-ESTRADA, ASSOCIATE PROFESSOR
OF LATIN AMERICAN HISTORY, BOSTON COLLEGE

“Compelling…. The information conveyed here is bountiful and includes a great deal of background on the civil war in Guatemala, the disappeared and the insurgency…. Recommended.”

LIBRARY JOURNAL

“‘DIRTY SECRETS’ exposes the world of cover-ups and lies that hide human rights violations. It is a deeply moving tragedy: two lives are drawn together by that which ultimately separates them: state terror. ”

CARLOS M. SALINAS, AMNESTY INTERNATIONAL USA

“‘DIRTY SECRETS’ commands attention, introduces the Guatemalan people’s struggle with great precision, and stimulates student opinion and discussion. It is a first-rate educational film in every respect.”

MARK TAYLOR, PROFESSOR OF RELIGION AND CULTURE,
PRINCETON THEOLOGICAL SEMINARY
