The value of memory: the current fight of a group of relatives of the disappeared people during the Guatemalan military dictatorship.

Fearless is the result of an extraordinary intuition. In 2012, the Inter-American Court of Human Rights condemned for the first time the State of Guatemala for forced disappearances - there were more than 45.000 during the years of the civil war (1960-1996). The group of relatives of people who were kidnapped and disappeared by the Guatemalan army, which filed the lawsuit, requested and obtained that, among other measures of reparation, there was the production of a documentary film to be made by the State. So far the State has refused to comply with the sentence - and to produce the film - but the relatives did not want to wait any longer: Fearless is their documentary. From the intuition that is the essence of culture, history and memory, now also played in the audiovisual field, they were deeply involved in the production of this film. Together with director Claudio Zulian they explored the languages of film, television, drawing and performance to illuminate in a new way the political aspects of this long fight for justice and memory.
