Skylight Pictures and their North American Public Broadcaster, PBS have teamed up to stream two documentaries, Granito: How to Nail a Dictator and its prequel, When the Mountains Tremble without geo-blocks – which makes them available to everyone, everywhere.
In a press release, Skylight Pictures' Pamela Yates and Paco Onis said:
"Granito: How to Nail a Dictator has a new ending. The dictator, General Efraín Ríos Montt was brought up on charges of genocide in Guatemala and placed under house arrest, so his appearance in court is now in our film. Ríos Montt is the first former head of state in the Americas to be charged with genocide - an amazing moment for all victims and granitos out in the world fighting to defend human rights and bring justice to perpetrators of mass atrocities. And we're proud that footage from Granito reinforced the prosecution's argument that Ríos Montt exerted command responsibility over the genocide.
"So with our U.S. broadcast partner, P.O.V. we decided to stream Granito and its prequel, When the Mountains Tremble in English and Spanish and remove the PBS geo-blocks in order to reach out beyond U.S. borders and stream these inspiring stories to the entire world!"
