Product Notes

In this lively intellectually stimulating discourse on the power of images renowned photojournalist 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 70s and 80s. Delving into the lives of guerrillas 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. Once photographed wielding contact bombs and marching in the streets these incredible Nicaraguans now live much as they did before the revolutionary days. The stories behind the acclaimed photos will ignite a new understanding of social struggle while inviting reflection on the war photographer's complex relationship with her subjects. PICTURES FROM A REVOLUTION is also a smart unvarnished tale of the evolution of images as they run headlong into popular culture and political agendas. "Rigorous hard-hitting yet deeply personal and compassionate" (Los Angeles Times). DVD Features: Susan Meiselas installs her photographs in the places where they were originally taken 2004; Susan Meiselas interviewed for Nicaraguan television 2002; New York Film Festival Press Conference 1991; Spanish Subtitles.
