SUNFLOWERS OF NICARAGUA (GIRASOLES DE NICARAGUA)
Nicaragua, 2017 / 80 min / Spanish OV with French subt. / Documentary
18 sex workers fight for the regulation of their profession in Nicaragua.
Eighteen female sex workers have been named judicial aides by Nicaragua’s Supreme Court to facilitate the resolution of conflicts that come up in their work. It is the first time in the world that sex workers have had access to this function. The film accompanies some of these women in their mediation work and in the actions they promote through their association, Girasoles (Sunflowers) of Nicaragua, to gain recognition and regulations for autonomous sex work.
