Warfield Center/ISESE Gallery – JES A232A
This 90-minute 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 Black Creoles: Memories and Identities” was filmed in Bluefields, Pearl Lagoon, Karatá and Puerto Cabezas (Bilwi). The presentation will include a Q&A session with María José Álvarez, the Director of the film, and Michael Campbell, the Coordinator of Programs and Projects for the Center for Human, Civil, and Autonomous Rights (CEDEHCA) in Nicaragua, which is one of the co-sponsors of the film.
