Summary In this discourse on the power of images, photojournalist Susan Meiselas returns to the scenes of a revolution she witnessed and captured with her camera in war-torn Nicaragua in the late 70s and 80s. Delving into the lives of guerrillas, Sandinistas, and bystanders a decade after they faced off in a bloody struggle, this film finds both disappointment and modest pride amidst still-fresh, stirring memories. Once photographed wielding contact bombs and marching in the streets, these incredible Nicaraguans now live much as they did before the revolutionary days.
