Niñez - Childhood in Nicaragua
"Who would I be if I had grown up somewhere else?", Jakub Dudzikowski asks himself and discovers how childhood in Nicaragua looks like. He portrays six children in different parts of Nicaragua.
The film also documents how the revolution from the 80's is still present today. How the kids opportunities depend from their families economic possibilities. How diverse the culture in this county is and how much the dreams of these kids differ.
The project was financially supported by the "Filmbüro" in Bremen. In a press statement the Jury of the "Filmbüro" states: "Niñez is convincing because of its topic, its interesting material and the young Filmmaker".
