I make no apologies for the quality of the video. That said, the color is somewhat faded
as though its a VHS of a broadcast. The audio is great though, makes you think Apocolypse Now,
when you hear Martin Sheen start into his narration.
By the way, I am told Ramone died in a major offensive by the government while this movie
was in post production, along with a few others they show. I believe my one-eyed
El Salvadoran friend when he tells me he fought alongside Ramone and shared many battles.
An evocative vision of a nation and its tragic civil conflict, IN THE NAME OF THE PEOPLE is the record of four filmmakers who secretly entered El Salvador, marched with a guerrilla column across the troubled country, and followed it into combat against government forces in San Salvador.
The civil war is given a personal dimension as we meet the insurgents and their supporters - a guerrilla commander, a 12 year old messenger, a peasant family victimized by right wing death squads, and Charlie Clements, an American doctor working with the rebels.
