Dreaming Nicaragua - Trailer

Event description 

The film will be followed by a discussion with Christina Falck, Vice President of the Fabretto Children’s Foundation, which helped produce the film.


“Dreaming Nicaragua” is a sensitive portrayal of four Nicaraguan children living in extreme poverty. The film takes us beyond their hardships and gives voice to the children, who are surprisingly funny, hopeful, and optimistic. A traveling art teacher provides a safe arena for the unlikely protagonists to express their innermost thoughts. When painting, the children momentarily leave behind the stress of their daily lives, escaping into a world of dreams and ideas.
