Se le movió el piso: A portrait of Managua

Se le movió el piso: A portrait of Managua is a documentary film by Anne Aghion about the many layers of destruction that the people in Managua, Nicaragua endured: the 1972 Nicaragua earthquake, four decades of dictatorship and many years of war. Most of the film was centered on the Salazar theater and the many families that lived there. Sofía Montenegro,[1] a journalist and a former Sandinista, was also interviewed as a person who lived and experienced the challenges of the Managuans.
