The film Roger scored this past December, “Granito: How to Nail a Dictator”, will premiere in the Boston area as part of the Independent Film Festival Boston.
When the film premiered at Sundance this year, the directors received a standing ovation when they went up for the Q+A. “Granito” is a documentary on the genocide in Guatemala, referencing the director’s first film: “When Mountains Tremble” from the mid-’80′s.
