Rigoberta Menchu 1 x 60'
The 29th December 1996 was a day of celebration in Guatemala. The government and the guerrillas signed a peace agreement, which put an end to 36 years of war. It was a celebration day for Rigoberta Menchú, winner of the Nobel Peace Prize, who had tirelessly drawn the attention of the world to the genocide being carried out in Indian villages.

Rigoberta Menchú‘s task, as she sees it, is to remind the reconciled warring parties of their responsibility for the citizens. Trust in the dialogue is developing slowly. Any women born in Guatemala as a Maya Indian carries a heavy burden, the legacy of centuries. And as old as the legacy itself is the protest against it. Rigoberta Menchú stands in the tradition of those who have raised their voices. The wounds which life inflicted upon her became her weapon. When she speaks, her words are transformed into pictures. And these pictures are inspired by life itself.
