Superemos: We Will Overcome

Samantha Kapinos | Nicaragua | 2017 | 11 mins


Superemos Synopsis

A woman from a small city in Nicaragua attends night school to get the high school degree that she wasn’t able to complete as an adolescent. She sets her sights on university education with the hope of a better life for her family.

About the Filmmaker

Samantha Kapinos is a creative and passionate storyteller who strives to use film as a way to shed light on the stories of demographics in need of better media representation. As a recent graduate of San Diego State University’s TV, Film, and New Media Critical Studies program, she is currently seeking every opportunity to expand her education outside of the classroom and tell the stories that deserve to be told.

More from the Filmmaker

It has been proven that educating women leaves positive impacts, not only on their own families, but also their societies as a whole. This project allowed our crew to tell the empowering story of two women who have been part of one group that is making a profound contribution to this mission. It was our pleasure getting to know these women and this foundation, and we hope you will get to see even a fraction of the impact we were able to see in this incredible community.
