Culture of peace
Rigoberta Menchú, spokesperson of the Guatemalan indigenous population and, by extension, of all marginalized groups in the continent, was awarded the Nobel Prize in 1992 for her contribution to peace and nominated UNESCO Goodwill Ambassador. This documentary retraces her life and action, as well as the Guatemalan peace process and the emergence of a new multicultural society after 36 years of civil war. A strong testimony of a long-awaited movement with far-reaching cultural and socio-political implications for all indigenous populations worldwide.
