En el tiempo de las Mariposas (In the Time of the Butterflies)

October 19, 2021, 2:00 pm to 4:00 pm

On Tuesday October 19 we continue to highlight prominent movies that challenge important social justice issues as they affect the world and the Hispanic community in particular. 

En el tiempo de las Mariposas (In the Time of the Butterflies)

From 1930 to 1961, General Rafael Leónidas Trujillo held absolute control of the Dominican Republic.
His secret alliance with the church, aristocrats, intellectuals and the press were the foundation of his dictatorship. His formula to remain in power was simple: murder anyone who opposed him.
More than 30,000 people were executed during his regime of terror…
In the Time of the Butterflies is inspired by the true story of the three Mirabal sisters who, in 1960, were murdered for their part in an underground plot to overthrow the government.
