Nicaragua 3: In Their Time
Marc Karlin
1985 - Royaume-Uni - Couleur - 70'

This third film focuses on the daily working life of the journalists and photographers of Barricada, the official publication of the Sandinista National Liberation Front. The film observes the dilemmas of putting socialism into practice through reports on the war, the economy, the prison system and the political process leading up to the 1984 elections. Rather than foregrounding the Sandinista leadership, these films speak from the grassroots, both urban and rural.
