A Family in History (2011)
Made in 1984-85 at the height of the Contra war, brings us inside Sandinista Nicaragua five years after the revolution that overthrew the dictator Anastasio Somoza. It centers on five siblings of the privileged, well-connected Barrios family, all deeply committed to the revolution and working for it in various capacities, often at considerable risk to themselves. The Barrios Family 25 Years Later, a group of 20 short films made in 2009-10, long after the historical opportunity for large-scale social transformation in Nicaragua had passed, carries forward the story of the Barrios family and their country, tracing their multi-generational struggle to find ways to live and work according to the ideals that inspired their youth.- Written by Anonymous
