Crucified Church

Available on Prime Video
Archbishop Óscar Romero's assassination in 1980 precipitated El Salvador's long and bloody civil war. Romero condemned the violent repression of the government, urging the US to suspend military aid and calling upon Salvadoran soldiers to defy orders to kill civilians. This outspoken entreaty led to his murder. This short documentary gives a powerful insight into the first years of the war.
