"Since the introduction of coffee growing, the history of Guatemala has been dictated by a small but very influential German community. The old coffee barons lead you through their huge plantations and drawing-rooms, show old films and faded photographs ... But war and violence reigns in a country of permanent dictatorship: the Indians are continuously battling against land confiscation, abuse and massacres. Without commentary, the film describes a situation which, although modulated during the course of time, still basically remains the same."--Container

in Spanish and held by 11 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ojalá: In Guatemala, at the beginning of the 1980s, tens of thousands of indigenous peasants fled into Mexico to escape the terror of the Guatemalan army. A decade later, negotiations with the government allowed refugees to return to Guatemala. The film shows various refugee camps in Mexico, the difficulties of survival in the camps, the fear by the displaced to return and militarization in the areas of conflict in Guatemala, and contains testimonies of victims of terror. Refugees repeatedly express not only a hope for a safe return, but also a desire for profound changes in their country of origin. Romper el cerco: A year after filming Ojalá in Mexico, the filmmakers travel to Guatemala to meet with refugees on the outskirts of Guatemala City in the Communities of Population in Resistance and in Ixcan Sierra del Quiche, as well as in the first communities of returnees from Mexico. The film shows the limited prospects of the returned refugees
