Abstract:

The World Stopped Watching is a sequel to the award winning the World Is Watching, a cinema verite look at foreign news coverage of a climactic moment in the US-financed Contra war against Nicaragua's revolutionary government. Fourteen years later, filmmakers Peter Raymont and Harold Crooks return to Nicaragua with two American journalists who were in the original film - and a Canadian journalist from La Presse - to discover what became of the first revolution to be conducted in the glare of the world media. They question the role and responsibility of journalists and their employers who first put Nicaraguans under the microscope, and then rushed off to the next hot spot.
