John Pilger's 1983 film about the small nation
of Nicaragua and its right to survive investigates the
corruption in Central America. In 1979, the Sandinistas won a popular
revolution in Nicaragua, putting an end to decades of the
corrupt US-backed Somoza dictatorship. They based their
reformist ideology on that of the English Co-operative Movement,
but was to prove too ‘radical’ for the Reagan administration.
In this film, Pilger describes the achievements of the
Sandinistas and their "threat of a good example".
