The brand new documentary ¡Las Sandinistas! explores the untold story of the ladies who fought on the entrance strains of Nicaragua’s Sandinista revolution to result in social and political reform for his or her nation, and the way their battles for equality proceed to the current day.
“I never heard tales of women commanding troops and leading massive grassroots social reform before I came across the stories of female Sandinistas,” filmmaker Jenny Murray says in her director’s assertion. “They found creative ways to rise up out of the inequality around them, to invent a more just world for themselves and for their country. In them, I found the role models I’d been searching for, and their stories changed my life.”
¡Las Sandinistas! will make its world premiere on the SXSW Movie Pageant in Austin, Texas, on March 12. Extra particulars concerning the movie’s SXSW screenings might be discovered on the pageant web site.
