After the Earthquake
Despues del terremoto

Set in San Francisco, this film chronicles a day in the life of Ilena, a newly arrived refugee from Nicaragua. The beautifully crafted narrative focuses on her adjustment to life in the United States among other Nicaraguans who fled the repression of the Somoza regime prior to the 1979 revolution and the conflicting ways in which they view their past.

Reviews
"...Unforgettable....An outsider can only feel instinctively that he or she has come close to the heart of Ilena's small circle of expatriate Nicaraguans."
- John J. O'Conner, THE NEW YORK TIMES
