2020 NINOSCA – The Woman and the Emigrant’s Song. Feature length documentary
For 40 years, Peter Torbiörnsson has been filming life in San Fernando/Nicaragua. What began as a portrait of a village became the story of Ninosca and her struggle for independence in the machismo culture of Central America. Ninosca breaks from her abusive husband and escapes to Europe with only one goal in mind: save money and come back to her children to start a new life. A story of true friendship and homage to all resilient and fearless women fighting for justice.
