Rating:
R
Roses in December is a 1982 drama that is based on the true story of four women who were murdered by El Salvador's security force on December 2, 1980. Dorothy Kazel, Jean Donovan, Ita Ford and Maura Clarke were four nuns that lived at the Maryknoll mission. The women worked to help feed, shelter and protect the poor. El Salvador's army targeted these women as a way to represent their policy of suppressing the poor and "liberation theology." The women's bodies are exhumed and studies to gain insight to their lives and deaths. The life of American Jean Donovan is represented by photos, interviews and archived news footage. Directors Ana Carrigan, Bernard Stone attempt to show viewers what really happened to these women on December 2, 1980 and how the Reagan Administration's foreign policy and U.S. intervention in Central America, lead up to and tolerated such unjust acts. It goes on to discuss and demonstrate how the Unites States attempted to whitewash and disregard the entire event.moreless
