May 10
Murphy's Community Centre

The film Burden of Peace will be screened at 7 pm on May 10 at Murphy's Community Centre, Room 106, 200 Richmond Street, Charlottetown. Admission is free, but donations will be accepted.

Five years ago, on May 10, 2012, cheers rang out and tears ran as Judge Yassmin Barrios read out the sentence for genocide committed against the Maya-Ixil people of Guatemala. For members of the Association of Justice and Reconciliation that survived the civil war and genocide in Guatemala, and fought for 12 years to have their voices heard, this was a significant day. 

Beyond the courageous Guatemalans that risked intimidation and threats, Claudia Paz y Paz, the Attorney General of Guatemala is credited with doing the impossible — arresting former dictator Efraín Rios Montt on charges of genocide and allowing his eventual conviction to be the first conviction of a former head of state for genocide in a national court in the world history. Paz y Paz also began a frontal attack against corruption, drug gangs and impunity in a country that continues to recover from a civil war and a post-war reality that sees more violence than during the worst of the war. 

To mark the fifth anniversary of the sentence for genocide in Guatemala, Breaking the Silence, along with Cinema Politica, and the PEI Coalition for Women in Government are proud to present Burden of Peace, which tells the story of this woman's three years in office, her impact on the lives of others and the ultimate price she paid.
