Between April and September 2015, the Central Plaza of Guatemala City witnessed a series of mass demonstrations calling for the resignation and prosecution of the highest officials in government, after investigations became public that revealed the existence of corruption structures rooted in the Guatemalan state. As new cases came to light, people across the country joined the demand for justice. Manifesto of Utopia weaves diverse voices that, in the calm that comes after the storm, reflect on their experience during that crucial year in Guatemala and the prospects of a story that is far from over.

Entre abril y septiembre de 2015, la Plaza Central de la Ciudad de Guatemala fue testigo de una serie de manifestaciones masivas que pedían la renuncia y enjuiciamiento de los más altos funcionarios de gobierno, luego de que se hicieran públicas investigaciones que revelaban la existencia de estructuras de corrupción enraizadas en el Estado guatemalteco. A medida que nuevos casos salían a la luz, gente en todo el país se fue sumando a la demanda de justicia. Mientras tanto la plaza ha vuelto a la calma, silenciosa, expectante. Manifiesto de la utopía teje diversas voces que reflexionan sobre su experiencia durante ese año crucial en Guatemala y sobre las perspectivas de una historia que se encuentra lejos de concluir.
