The Art of Political Murder

Available on Crave
Two days after presenting a damning report blaming the atrocities of the civil war on the Guatemalan military, Guatemalan human rights activist Bishop Juan Gerardi was murdered, stunning a country ravaged by decades of political violence. Based on Francisco Goldman's book and executive produced by Oscar winners George Clooney and Grant Heslov, this film tells the story of the 1998 killing and the subsequent investigation by the church that uncovered a web of conspiracy and murder, entangling the upper echelons of the government.
