Risultato della ricerca: Contributo in rivistaArticolo in rivista


The film “Distancia” (2010) by Guatemalan director Sergio Ramírez is based on real facts occurred in recent years. During the 80’s, in Guatemala a genocide was perpetrated against the indigenous population. This caused the death of 200,000 people, the leak to Mexico of more than 50,000 Mayan and a little-known phenomenon: the exodus to the mountains of one million people, wich received the name of CPR (Communities of Population in Resistance). The film tells a story derived from such escape. The article analyzes the film, an through that analysis tries to show how geographic distance became a symbolic distance, metaphor of distance between the different ethnic groups of Guatemala.
