2004. Nicaragua. Directed by Mercedes Moncada. Coproduction with Mexico and Spain. Set in post–civil war Nicaragua, this powerful portrait of the Rivera family illustrates how division, religious manipulation, male chauvinism, and poverty form part of the legacy of a war that saw families torn asunder by sons fighting on opposite sides. With compelling visual language and intimate access, the filmmaker illuminates the division and hardship left behind for future generations to contend with. In Spanish; English subtitles. 85 min.
