Description

“Everyday, journalists put their lives on the line to tell the truth.” The legacy of Guatemala’s 36 year civil war is still palpable where journalists, citizen media and individual activists are vulnerable to retribution for their courage to expose government corruption. Student filmmakers Walt Schoen and Daniel Novikov interview a former soldier, media professionals and a deported asylum-seeker from the U.S. who provide their perspective on the freedom of expression in Guatemala. A film by Walt Schoen and Daniel Novikov created during HW Go! Guatemala: A Digital Storytelling Adventure, a program of Harvard-Westlake School and Peace Works Travel. Executive producers Cheri Gaulke, Jackson Kroopf, and Alethea Tyner Paradis. Copyright 2018.
