Film: How 2 boys survived a Guatemalan massacre

This was sent to New England Diary on April 24

"We are reaching out with an opportunity to see a special advance screening of Finding Oscar, a new documentary about two boys who survived a massacre during the Guatemalan Civil War and help bring justice to those responsible.

"This is a one-time only event in Providence and a unique opportunity to hear from the film's subject, Oscar Ramírez Castañeda, who will be at the theater for a post-screening conversation. It is sure to be a powerful event and we hope you can join us. 

"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.''
