Hidden Plain Sight is a feature-length documentary that looks
at the nature of U.S. policy in Latin America through the
prism of the School of the Americas (renamed, in January of
2001, the Western Hemisphere Institute for Security Cooperation),
the controversial military school that trains Latin American
soldiers in the USA.
Every November, thousands of people from across North America
gather outside Fort Benning, Georgia to form one of the largest
anti-war demonstrations in the U.S. since the Vietnam War.
The issue is the controversial U.S. Army School of the Americas,
where over 60,000 Latin soldiers have been trained, among
them dictators like Manuel Noriega of Panama and death squad
leaders like Roberto D’Aubuisson of El Salvador.
A short history, a spirited debate, a personal story, and
a call for accountability, Hidden in Plain Sight is a bold,
unflinching look at the nature and consequences of U.S. policy
in Latin America.
