A one-of-a-kind visual testimony from the civil conflict in El Salvador, In the Name of the People situates the viewer marching alongside a guerilla column en route to San Salvador, meeting along the way the impoverished victims of death squads, an idealistic American doctor, a preteen partisan, and others who offer a human face to this life-and-death struggle. Screening with FALN, a primer on Venezuela's liberation struggle and US imperialist interference.

Screening in the series Icarus Films at 40.
