Voice of a Mountain, is a documentary of the lives of rural Guatemalan coffee farmers who took up arms against their government in a civil war that lasted 36 years.
This film explores Guatemala's dark history from the perspective of
those who saw armed revolution as their only hope for change in a
nation suppressed by years of poverty and dictatorship. Ex-combatants
talk about the reality of the country that led to their involvement in
the war, and the response of genocide from the Guatemalan government
against it's people.

El documental "La voz de la montaña" es la historia de la vida de unos
campesinos cafetaleros que tomaron las armas en contra el gobierno en
una guerra civil que duro 36 años. Este documental explora la oscura
historia desde la pespectiva de aquellos que vieron la revolución
armada como la unica esperanza para erradicar la pobreza bajo años de
dictaduras militares. Los excombatientes hablan sobre la cruda
realidad de un país y que los llevó a involucrarse en la guerra , y la
respuesta del genocidio de parte del gobierno de Guatemala en contra
de su gente.
