Kickstarter--MEMORIAS DEL FUEGO: Women and Revolution in Nicaragua

A film about disappearing stories of women who fought in Nicaragua's Sandinista Revolution, and their continuing struggles for justice. MEMORIAS DEL FUEGO is a feature-length documentary about the stories, struggles, and triumphs of former Sandinista women in Nicaragua who refused to conform – changing the face of their country. They played a vital role in winning the Sandinista Revolution of 1979, but four decades later they are still fighting for justice and social equality. We knew we had to try to film these stories, so we went this April using only our savings and borrowed equipment to capture what we could, and found more than we imagined. We had to get back to complete a feature.
