Pictures from a Revolution
DIRECTOR: SUSAN MEISELAS, RICHARD P. RODGERS, AND ALFRED GUZZETTI
Screening followed by a book signing with Susan Meiselas of the newly-released 3rd edition of Nicaragua, with an augmented reality component that triggers clips from the film Pictures from a Revolution.
Renowned photographer Susan Meiselas returns to the scenes of a revolution she witnessed and captured with her camera. Richly suffused with context and color, Pictures from a Revolution catches up with the places and people behind Meiselas’ iconic photographs of war-torn Nicaragua in the late 70’s and 80’s. Delving into the lives of guerillas, Sandinistas, and bystanders, scattered from Miami to Managua, a decade after they faced off in a bloody struggle, this artful film finds both disappointment and modest pride amidst still-fresh, stirring memories.
