Directed by Maria José Álvarez and Martha Clarissa Hernández (Nicaragua) 90 min

This film narrates the largely untold story of this group of African descendants of the Caribbean Coast of Nicaragua. María José Álvarez and Martha Clarissa Hernández, Nicaraguan filmmakers and co-directors of this ethnographic documentary, collected oral testimonies that detail the ethno-genesis of the Creole ethnic group, its ancestral customs, cultural traditions, historic relationship to the Caribbean, and the challenges it has faced in Nicaragua. The film was shot entirely in Bluefields, Pearl Lagoon, Karatá and Puerto Cabezas.
