The World Stopped Watching: Nicaragua After The Revolution

USA | 2004 | 82 min | NR

CASA-PUEBLITO PRESENTS: THE WORLD STOPPED WATCHING: NICARAGUA AFTER THE REVOLUTION. This ground-breaking film captured the reporting of a climatic moment in the US-financed Contra war against Nicaragua’s revolutionary Sandinista government.


With the current situation in Nicaragua, this film – followed by Q&A with the director and special guests – is a vital touchstone to reflect on what has developed in Nicaragua since, and what lies ahead. “A searing and powerful message; a rare view of the Nicaraguan people’s triumphs and tragedies, and the grim aftermath of the Sandinista Revolution and US-run Contra war”, writes Noam Chomsky.


Director: Peter Raymont
Cast: Édith Carrone, Bill Gentile, Daniel Ortega


Don’t miss this extraordinary evening that includes an After Party in the neighborhood. Proceeds support Casa – Pueblito, a charitable organization with the vision for compassion and social justice across borders.

Film followed by Q&A with the director and special guests
