Tuesday, August 5 - Discovering Dominga
Living in Iowa, Denese Becker was haunted by memories of her Mayan
childhood. A quest for her lost identity in Guatemala turns into a searing journey of
political awakening that reveals a genocidal crime and the still-unmet cry for
justice from the survivors. In Discovering Dominga, Denese's journey home is both a
voyage of selfdiscovery that permanently alters her relationship to her American family and a
political awakening that sheds light on an act of genocide against this
hemisphere’s largest indigenous majority.
Directed by Patricia Flynn and Mary Jo McConahay.
