    El Amparo (9/5) Spanish with English Subtitles

    In October 1988, 14 men were murdered by the Venezuelan military in El Amparo, a village near the Arauca River. The victims were fishermen, but the military claimed they were guerilla fighters. This painful atrocity and its tumultuous aftermath are the subject of Rober Calzadilla’s haunting first feature. This is a profound meditation on how communities contend with outrage and grief, and the troubling question of who gets to control historical truth.
