Susan Meiselas will speaking this coming Friday after a screening of Nicaragua Part 1: Voyages (1985) at our Return Nicaragua Event, at UCL.
In 1981, Susan Meiselas published Nicaragua, June 1978 to July 1979, 70 photographs she took documenting the Sandinista revolution. Ten years later, In Pictures from a Revolution, Meiselas returns to Nicaragua a decade later with co-directors Richard P. Rogers and Alfred Guzzetti to track down the people — guerrillas and bystanders — pictured in her original photographs. The people share their feelings about how their lives have changed, for the better and for worse, in the years since the conflict, and recall the circumstances surrounding those moments of their lives captured by Meiselas’ camera.
Directors: Susan Meiselas, Alfred Guzzetti, Richard Rogers
