If you've kept up with your New Yorker magazines, you read an article recently about a brutal episode of power politics in Guatemala, concerning the death of a prominent lawyer named Rodrigo Rosenberg. The story has more twists and turns than a Roman Polanski thriller, but it's fundamentally about the ruling upper class. In the meantime, the majority of Guatemalans live in poverty, under the yoke of forces that include the 36-year civil war. Two Raleigh activists, Bill and Cherie Cummings, founded Lemonade International to partner with leaders in that country's urban slums. Now Lemonade—named for La Limonada, the country's most notorious slum—is sponsoring a screening of Reparando, a documentary about the efforts of Guatemalans to heal their country and bring justice to its citizens. The film focuses on the work of a former gang member and an activist to effect reform and micro-enterprise. Tickets to the 7 p.m. screening are $8. —David Fellerath
