Storyline

LAS SANDINISTAS. uncovers a watershed moment in history when a group of Nicaraguan women shattered barriers to lead rebel troops in battle and reshape their country with landmark social reforms during 1979's Sandinista Revolution and the ensuing US-backed Contra War - only to face renewed marginalization by their male peers once the wars ended. Now, 35 years later, amid the worst levels of violence against women in Nicaraguan history, these same women take to the streets to lead the popular movements for equality and democracy once again.

Eye Opening and Truthful
24 October 2018 | by mapappasSee all my reviews

I watched Las Sandinistas as a student at The University of Tampa. I was lucky enough to participate in a Q&A with the films director Jenny. The lengths that Jenny went to reveal the truths of Nicaragua's women revolutionaries was almost as inspiring as what Nicaragua's women revolutionaries did for their own country. The film was emotional and brought me and many other audience members to tears. I will be telling as many people as possible about this unique war documentary.
