  *Mexico and Central America Program Film Series: Two Documentaries on 
Guatemala
/Discovering Dominga /and /In the Shadow of the Raid/, to be presented 
Thursday, October 14, 6 PM*

Also in conjunction with the publication of the new /ReVista/ on 
Guatemala, two contributors to the issue will be presenting documentary 
films that they have produced at a special screening that will be held 
at DRCLAS on the evening of Thursday, October 14. Journalist *Mary Jo 
McConahay* will present */Discovering Dominga/* (2003), which tells the 
story of a Guatemalan-born woman who returned to her native village 
years after being adopted by a family in Iowa. There, she grappled with 
the reality that the rest of her family and many other village residents 
had been killed in a massacre of Maya peasants that she had survived as 
a small child. Also, filmmaker *Greg Brosnan* will present */In the 
Shadow of the Raid/*, which documents the impact of the massive 
immigration raid on the *Agriprocessors slaughterhouse in Postville, 
Iowa,* both on that Midwestern community and on the Guatemalan village 
from which many of the workers caught up in the raid had come. The 
screenings will begin at 6pm in the Tsai Auditorium on the concourse 
level (downstairs) of CGIS South.
