‘Granito is a concept I first learned in the Guatemalan highlands and have carried with me throughout my filmmaking life. It reflects the communal values that guide Maya communities and means that each of us can make a small contribution to positive social change, and together we can make great changes in favour of equality and human rights,’ she continues.
The film has already won a host of awards, including Best Creative Documentary at the Paris International Human Rights Film Festival. For more details, visit granitofilm.com
