Tell Them for Us; MADRE in Nicaragua

28:00 | 1985

Co-produced/Edited with Jane Lurie for Madre Video Project
Music by Duo Guardabaranco

Shot by CBS News camerawoman, Jane Lurie, the film follows a diverse group of U.S. women who have joined the organization MADRE to travel to Nicaragua, meeting with women’s groups and individuals all over the country including the north -  where the U.S.-backed “contra” war was being fought. The U.S. women learn about the Sandinista revolution and what it has meant for the women of Nicaragua. In an expression of deep solidarity, they have raised money to present a new ambulance to the Bertha Calderon Hospital in Managua.
