Blood in the Backyard (Trailer)

On November 16, 1989, six Jesuits and two women were brutally murdered at the University of Central America in San Salvador, El Salvador, by US-trained and funded commandos of the Salvadoran armed forces. The executions, carried out in the middle of the night in the Jesuits’ backyard, reminded the world just how dangerous preaching the Gospel and serving the poor in a politically-fraught landscape could be.

Loyola Productions is proud to present BLOOD IN THE BACKYARD, a compelling documentary film about the men and women who suffered the ultimate sacrifice and whose lives gave witness to what it means to live a life of faith that does justice.
