A Shot in the Cathedralby Mario Bencastro, Susan Giersbach Rascon (Translator)
Not a propagandistic no partisan
FOLLOWING A COUP D'ETAT in El Salvador and the establishment of martial law, the new ruling junta turns to the United States for support to quell public demonstrations and combat guerrillas in the mountains. One man, a religious leader, takes the initiative to protest the military rule and the U.S. aid He is silenced with a bullet.
Not a propagandistic no partisan view of the strife, A Shot in the Cathedral is remarkable for its sensitivity, restraint and poetic vision of the tragic and inhuman events and actions that polarized not only the people of El Salvador but also those of the United States, Latin America and Europe.
