Please note

Sorry, we don't have images or video for this item.

Documents the Sandinista uprising from the general strike of June 1979 through the first hundred days of reconstruction after the victory. A fast-paced “on the spot” film which eloquently captures the furious demise of the Somoza dynasty in its desperate attempt to turn back the tide of history, and which also paints a powerful portrait of the forces at work within the Nicaraguan revolution.
