A fascinating screening of the soon to be released film, Finding Oscar. This film, directed by U of I alumnus Ryan Suffern (who came to campus from L.A. to do a Q & A after the screening), tells the story of a massacre in a small Guatemalan village and the after-effects as archaeologists, human rights advocates, legal experts, historians, and survivors try to piece together what happened and how to bring justice to bear on the horror. The title alludes to a child survivor who was found in Massachusetts and reunited with his biological father through a DNA test. The screening room was almost full and we were able to reach out to students, community members, and colleagues associated with Latin American Studies.
