Generations in Solidarity is a short documentary that looks at relationships between North and Central America over the past 25 years. It follows individuals as they explore the progress made, new challenges introduced by globalization and the role of solidarity in bringing about change.
Filmed on location in El Salvador, Guatemala and North America - this 'no-budget' production was Directed by Jeff & Rita Nohner and made possible by equipment, professional services and post-production expenses donated by Life Image, LLC. Volunteer resources contributed their expertise to location production, translation, event coordination and travel planning. It would not have been possible without the assistance of the staff and linkages within Sister Parish, Inc.
