We are pleased to invite you to a screening of Marcela Zamora’s award-winning documentary on the legacy of the internal armed conflict in El Salvador, “Los Ofendidos.” A panel discussion will immediately follow the film.
The film features Marcela Zamora’s father, Rubén Zamora, a key political leader and current Salvadoran Ambassador to the UN, who was captured and tortured during his country’s civil war. Bringing to light his story as well as those of others who suffered equally horrible torments in candid interviews, Marcela Zamora has created a documentary that gives voice to those stories many would prefer to keep silent.
