"Return to El Salvador" with SPEAKER: Director Jamie Moffett

Newly released, narrated by Martin Sheen and endorsed by Desmond Tutu, Return to El Salvador is a compelling story of vibrant Salvadorian individuals and communities among the intricate geo-political systems that have profoundly impacted their lives. While documenting the country's 12-year-long civil war, it asks why 700 Salvadorans leave their country every day while reminding audiences why the fate of these people is intimately bound to the recent history of the United States. It also tells the story of the tragic death of activist Marcelo Rivera asking how it relates to Canadian mining corporations. So far, the film has been instrumental in initiating changes to public policy regarding corporate accountability in Canada.
