More Than Just Words

A film by Anna Katharina Wohlgenannt

A 2010, HDV, 72 Min.

Synopsis

MORE THAN JUST WORDS: doing something rather than just talking about a problem. In February 1984, 50 Austrians formed the work brigade “February ’34” and set off for Nicaragua.

 

They were moved by their solidarity with the Sandinista Revolution, which ended the decades-long dictatorship of the Somoza clan, only to be threatened by the US policy of invasion. For almost a month, the group worked on construction of a community center under extremely difficult conditions, at the same time getting acquainted with a country in the middle of a process started by a revolution.

 

This is a film about commitment, coming to terms with reality and a desire for a better world that lives on.
