Available on Prime Video
At the height of the Cold War in the 1980s, a civil war between socialist-influenced Sandinistas and US-backed Contras ravaged Nicaragua. Using rare archival footage and contemporary interviews, American/Sandinista tells the story of a controversial group of US engineers who went further than anyone expected and paid the ultimate price.
