The award-winning documentary film Justice for My Sister takes an intimate look at violence against women in Guatemala by chronicling the three-year journey of Rebeca as she tries to hold her sister's killer accountable.
The film serves as the centerpiece of a transnational campaign to promote healthy relationships and denounce gender-based violence and femicide/feminicide.
The Justice for My Sister Collective is a project of Community Partners that uses the arts to promote healthy relationships, prevents domestic and sexual violence, develops local leadership in youth, trains community mediators, and connects the general public to services. We use interactive workshops, theater, screenings and public forum discussion to build relationships with community members. We currently have a chapter in Guatemala City and a chapter in Southern California. We have identified partner organizations throughout 20 countries who use our film and educational materials and toolkits to further their own local campaigns and promote gender equity using popular education techniques through the arts: film, theater, music, painting, oral history, and photography.
