The Silence of the Mole_2.png

In the 1970s, a journalist who called himself ‘The Mole’ infiltrated the bowels of Guatemala’s most repressive government in order to help the resistance, accessing information about political violence that the military government had been planning. Today, the search for this unusual character probes the cracks in the walls of silence that surround this country’s hidden history.

This film has been nominated for the Youth Jury Award.

The silence of the Mole will be followed by a live online Q&A with Anais Taracena which will be live-streamed from the cinema to Selects. This is also available to watch below.
