Who were Las Mariposas, and why were they murdered?
For over 30 years, thousands of people were imprisoned, tortured, and murdered under Rafael Trujillo's dictatorship in the Dominican Republic. Three sisters would go on to lead an underground revolution. But while their courage inspired many, it threatened the man in power, and their lives would come to a tragic early end. Who were these brave women? Lisa Krause tells the story of Las Mariposas. [Directed by Tomás Pichardo-Espaillat, narrated by Safia Elhillo, music by Cem Misirlioglu and Sergio Sayeg].
