Nonfic2on
Salvador
by
Joan
Didion
In
late
1982
the
novelist
Joan
Didion
spent
two
weeks
in
El
Salvador
at
the
ghastly
height
of
its
civil
war.
Didion
delivers
an
anatomy
of
that
country's
particular
brand
of
terror–its
mechanisms,
rationales,
and
intimate
relation
to
United
States
foreign
policy
from
battleAields
to
body
dumps,
interviews
a
puppet
president,
and
considers
the
distinctly
Salvadoran
grammar
of
the
verb
"to
disappear."

the
social
upheaval
of
El

civil
war
that
ended
in

1986
war
drama
Ailm
which
tells
the
story
of
an
American
journalist
in
El
Salvador
covering
the
Salvadoran
civil
war.
The
Ailm,
written
by
Oliver
Stone
and
Richard
Boyle,
was
directed
by
Stone.
Stone's
portrayal
is
sympathetic
towards
the
left
wing
peasant
revolutionaries,
but
deplores
their
killing
of
prisoners
in
a
crucial
scene.
He
is
strongly
critical
towards
the
U.S.‐supported
right
wing
military
and
the
allied
death
squads,
focusing
on
their
assassination
of
four
American
churchwomen,
including
Jean
Donovan.
Stone's
portrayal
of
the
Catholic
Church
as
a
force
for
justice
reAlects
events
of
the
time,
exempliAied
in
the
political
sermon
of
Archbishop
Óscar
Romero,
which
is
based
almost
word‐for‐word
on
the
speech
Romero
made
before
he
was
assassinated
by
a
death
squad.
The
Ailm
was
nominated
for
two
Academy
Awards:
Best
Actor
in
a
Leading
Role
(Woods)
and
Best
Writing,
Screenplay
Written
Directly
for
the
Screen
(Stone
and
Boyle).
