"10 Documentaries to Watch out for in 2018"
"¡Las Sandinistas! does a first-class job of exploring the risks and rewards of putting your life on the line for what you believe is right."
"!Las Sandinistas! is Jenny Murray’s first feature-length documentary and a fascinating tale chronicling the rise and fall of the revolutionary group that overthrew the Nicaraguan government. Shifting from the viewpoint of the various lead subjects, !Las Sandinistas! elevates its subject matter beyond mere footnote in the Iran Contra debacle, giving us powerful peek into the female half of the revolution."
"This is one of the best documentaries I have seen in a while, and I hope gets seen enough to make it into contention for next year’s Academy Awards. It’s certainly Oscar-worthy. If this is the best movie I see at SXSW this year, I will have had a great festival."
"Women who fought and died for the Sandinistas tell stories about the triumphs--and failures--of the Nicaraguan revolution in this fascinating feminist documentary."
"A rousing, tribute to the female members of Nicaragua’s revolutionary Sandinista party."
The Hollywood Reporter
"Murray explores this all with shocking depth and stunning detail, creating a powerful portrait of the nature of freedom and what it means to be willing to die to earn it."
