FINDING OSCAR

Film Screeninscreening, followed by a Q&A with director Ryan Suffern, moderated by Brett Ashley Kaplan.

Description

Join the Holocaust, Genocide, Memory Studies, the Center for Latin American and Caribbean Studies, Department of English, and Program in Comparative and World Literature for a special advance screening of FINDING OSCAR. 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 screening will be followed by a Q&A with director Ryan Suffern, moderated by Brett Ashley Kaplan.
