Finding Oscar
(Ryan Suffern, 2016, 100 min, USA, in English and Spanish w/ English Subtitles, DCP) 

In a forgotten massacre during Guatemala's decades-long civil war, a young boy was spared, only to be raised by one of the very soldiers who killed his family. Nearly 30 years after the tragedy, it will take a dedicated team - from a forensic scientist to a young Guatemalan prosecutor - to uncover the truth and bring justice to those responsible - by finding the missing boy named Oscar.

“The barbarity described in Finding Oscar is stomach-turning, but moments of courage still shine through in this unsettling yet vital documentary.”
-- Ken Jaworowski, New York Times

“Suffern strikes a respectful, not entirely hopeless tone throughout, allowing those affected by the civil war in general and the Dos Erres massacre in particular to speak at length about their experiences.”
-- Michael Nordine, Village Voice

Cost: Free and Open to the Public

Sponsors: The Duke Human Rights Center @FHI, the Duke-UNC Consortium in Latin American and Caribbean Studies, the Center for Latin American and Caribbean Studies (CLACS), and the Program in the Arts of the Moving Image (AMI).
