From the makers of Granito, a short film series that opens the courtroom doors of the genocide trial of General Efraín Ríos Montt.

Dictator in the Dock is a 23-episode series that brings you inside the courtroom as General Efraín Ríos Montt stands trial in Guatemala for genocide against the Maya Ixil people. Filmed highlights in this series include:

•             Excerpts from the 103 Maya Ixil eye-testimonies about atrocities they suffered

•             A range of expert witness testimony--forensic evidence of exhumations, academic research attesting to enduring and ingrained racism in Guatemala, secret government documents bolstering the prosecution's argument that a military strategy was implemented with the objective of destroying the Maya Ixil population as part of a counterinsurgency campaign.

•             The opening and closing statements

•             The guilty verdict read by Judge Barrios.

This short film series is a part of an educational package:

•             DVD with license for your library with extended versions of the 23 episodes of the series.

•             Exclusive access to an online educational hub with a comprehensive resource guide, interactive timeline, episodes for web-streaming, and discussion forum.
