During the civil war of El Salvador back in the decade of the 80’s a horrific murder took place.
The documentary The Dark Hands of Oblivion tells the story of the murder of three American nuns, Ita Ford, Maura Clarke, Dorothy Kazel and the missionary Jean Donovan on December 2nd. Of 1980.
Responsible of such atrocity was one of the most repressive armed forces which no longer exists, El Salvador National Guard.
The scenes that the documentary show are hard and breath taking and are not suitable for minors.
Unfortunately the theme developed by the Salvadorian director, Mauro Arevalo is part of the history of El Salvador, the smallest country in Central America.
This dramatic event should never be forgotten and is shown on the documentary in the exact explicit order in which they happened and now remembered on the well documented film “The Dark Hands of Oblivion.
This documentary will be screened on the same day of the film “Romero” of Raul Julia, honoring the canonization of the murdered Salvadorian Arch-bishop Oscar Arnulfo Romero at the Vatican on Sunday October 15th, 2018.
