500 Years ★★

The 500 years refers to the oppression over that length of time of the indigenous Mayans by the white Guatemalans, abetted in the 20th century by American imperialism. This documentary illustrates that systematic oppression with photos and anecdotes, culminating with a kind of "Arab Spring" grass-root revolution in 2015 against the corrupt government. Unfortunately, despite the film makers' best intentions, the resulting documentary is over-long and repetitive.
