New Documentary Explores El Savador's Woes
Despite a new democracy and alleged peace, human rights violations still abound
Return to El Salvador, a new documentary by Jamie Moffett and narrated by Martin Sheen, looks at the reconstruction of a nation torn by civil war (1980-1992), trying to rebuild but still facing human rights violations and other injustices. The film, according to its website, "explores the hopes of the Salvadoran people and helps find significant ways to walk with them in their journey. Return to El Salvador represents the power and audacity of solidarity and challenges North Americans to question the global impact of their government on struggling nations."
