FINDING OSCAR REVIEWED
“Finding Oscar” is about the aftermath of the Dos Erres village massacre. The two survivors were 3 and 5 year old boys. The 5 year old provided framework for what happened, but the 3 year old has been missing since 1982. Now, a documentary team dives into historical record and the depths of Guatemala to learn about their Civil War and what happened to this missing kid. The film arrives as the first documentary from Kennedy/Marshall. The film isn’t as heavy as most documentaries, but it shines a light on recent history that goes ignored in America.

The Plot Thus Far
In a forgotten massacre during Guatemala’s decades-long civil war, a young boy was spared, only to be raised by one of the very soldiers who killed his family. Nearly 30 years after the tragedy, it will take a dedicated team — from a forensic scientist to a young Guatemalan prosecutor — to uncover the truth and bring justice to those responsible…by finding the missing boy named Oscar. Directed by Ryan Suffern, produced by Frank Marshall and Suffern, and executive produced by Steven Spielberg, FINDING OSCAR had its world premiere at the prestigious Telluride Film Festival and is the first film to emerge from The Kennedy/Marshall Company’s documentary division.
