The World Stopped Watching
(Peter Raymont, Nicaragua, 2003, 82m)
What happens to a country's people when the media spotlight is turned off? As the last battleground of the Cold War, the Sandinista/Contra conflict was one of the biggest news stories of the 80s. At that time director Peter Raymont made the award-winningThe World is Watching, which documented the media circus in 1987 in Managua, Nicaragua. In The World Stopped Watching, Raymont returns, fourteen years on, with the two American and one Canadian journalist who appeared in the original film, to discover what became of the first revolution to be conducted in the glare of the world media. They question the role and responsibility of journalists and their employers who first put Nicaraguans under the microscope, and then rushed off to the next hot spot.

In Spanish with English subtitles. More info at or at
