‘La Violencia’ documents the lives of the indigenous Mayan women of Guatemala. Guatemala is explored from its violent history to its current fragile state, through the personal stories of indigenous women and activists and narrated by Aidan Gillen. Guatemala’s armed conflict tore the country apart for 36 years, claiming the lives of over 200,000 men, women and children. In 2013 Guatemala became the first country in history to put a former head of state on trial for genocide in a domestic court. The accused is General Rios Montt, who ruled the country during the most brutal period of the armed conflict, known as ‘La Violencia’. The trial has been marred by outside pressure from the powerful elite and has pushed the justice system to its limits.
