A CLA Scholarly Intersections event (co-sponsored by: FEA, GEOG, Latin American Studies, RGRLL, The Spanish Graduate Student Association and the University Library)

la-yuma1

Nicaragua’s first full-length feature in 20 years, La Yuma tells the story of a young woman who dreams of transcending her bleak life in the slums of Managua by becoming a boxer. Looking beyond the meager possibilities that seem available to her (and ignoring the advice of her gang-member friends), she finds solace and hope in her training and falls in love with a middle-class journalism student.
