Her epic film The Reckoning, about the tumultuous first 6 years of the International Criminal Court, was filmed on 4 continents and in 7 languages and also premiered at the Sundance Film Festival.

Currently, Yates is working on 500 Years, the third in the Guatemalan trilogy that explores the battle for the national narrative in present-day Guatemala.
