Shows featuring Pamela Yates

Partner at Skylight Pictures, a documentary film and digital media company that focuses on human rights and social justice stories. In 1983, she collaborated with the now Nobel Peace Prize winner Rigoberta Menchú on the film When the Mountains Tremble. Yates’ most recent documentary is called Granito: How to Nail a Dictator, about building the genocide case against General Efraín Ríos Montt. She is currently working on a third film in the Guatemala trilogy called 500 Years. It looks at how the Ríos Montt Genocide trial empowered Guatemala’s nonviolent resistance movements.
