The Caribbean Working Group through PLACA presents: the film: Granito: How to nail a dictator Followed by discussion with the film makers Sometimes a film makes history; it doesn’t just document it. So it is with ”Granito: How to Nail a Dictator”, the astonishing new film by Pamela Yates. Part political thriller, part memoir, Yates transports us back in time through a riveting, haunting tale of genocide and returns to the present with a cast of characters joined by destiny and the quest to bring a malevolent dictator to justice. Pamela Yates is a co-founder of Skylight Pictures, Inc. a New York City based multi-media company committed to producing artistic, challenging and socially relevant independent documentary films on issues of human rights and the quest for justice. Through the use of film and digital technologies, the Skylight Pictures team seeks to engage, educate and increase understanding of human rights amongst the public at large and policy makers, contributing to informed decisions on issues of social change and the public good. Paco de Onís grew up in several Latin American countries and is multi-lingual (Spanish, Portuguese, English, Italian, French).
