This festival highlights the important documentary work of New College Media Studies students, alumni and faculty.

but creating a new society.

to take their union back from corrupt union bureaucrats and union busting bosses in San Francisco.



1:15 El Salvador: In the Name of Democracy (1984) by Kevin Pina (30 min.) reveals the human face of members and supporters of the Frente Farabundo Marti

2:00 1990 Elections: A Vote Under War (1990) by Adrian Carrasco Zanini (30 min). A film about the 1990 Nicaraguan presidential election in which the Sandinistas lost due largely to the effects of the U.S sponsored Contra War.

Part II New College Media Studies students' productions:
