The Silence of the Mole

By Anaïs Taracena

In the late 1970s, Elías Barahona, a journalist nicknamed "The Mole", infiltrated the Guatemalan government during the darkest hours of its history, risking his life to gather information about state violence and repression. In this impeccably edited first feature, Anaïs Taracena leads a breathtaking investigation in which history, memory and the necessary courage to uncover the truth interwine.
