The Past is Not History
A film made for the Arcatao Museum of Historical Memory in Chalatenango, El Salvador. The documentary investigates the Salvadoran civil war from the perspective of the ‘campesinos’, or peasant farmers, and the process of creating an historical narrative of the conflict from the memories of the people who lived through it.
