State of Fear

Tuesday, January 10, 2006

The directors of two new documentaries on Peru describe how the country's democracy suffered in the name of fighting terrorism. Peru's Truth Commission found that between 1980 and 2000, over 69,000 people were killed in terrorist or government-sponsored violence. Pamela Yates, director of "State of Fear", and Ellen Perry, director of "Fall of Fujimori", join us.
