El Salvador – The People Will Win

Film, Documentaries

Time Out says

In a forest clearing, a freedom fighter carrying a movie camera approaches a peasant woman with a large basket. She produces a rifle from her basket, he gives her the camera to hide. Guerilla war means guerilla cinema. Both weapons are equally vital in the struggle against a barbarous US-backed junta and a pernicious US-mediated TV account of the two-year-old civil war. This documentary collates material from European TV and clandestine film crews to update the account of the war already lost in Vietnam being re-fought by America's new warlords.
