Reframing History (2004)

film, 12 minutes

Susan Meiselas


In July 2004, for the 25th anniversary of the overthrow of Somoza, Meiselas returned to Nicaragua with nineteen mural-sized images of her photographs from 1978-1979, collaborating with local communities to create sites for collective memory. The project, Reframing History,  placed murals on public walls and in open spaces in the towns, at the sites where the photographs were originally made.
