Streaming throughout April on SIMA RAMA, Burden of Peace follows Guatemala’s first female Attorney General Claudia Paz y Paz in her fight against impunity. Faced with a system that has permitted corruption for decades and allowed over 90% of crimes to remain unsolved, Claudia Paz y Paz is determined to get results and many high-level arrests are made, including the arrest of a former head of state charged with committing genocide. But her determination encounters strong resistance from powerful elites, that are both dismissive of her human rights agenda and have - up to then - felt above the rule of law.
SIMA RAMA is an online film club for impact cinema that connects members directly with creators, experts, live panels, and collective actions.
