The remarkable story of Henrietta Boggs. Her marriage to José ‘Don Pepe’ Figueres in 1941 led to a decade-long journey through activism, exile, and lasting progressive reforms.The film is not only a depiction of the momentous struggle to shape Costa Rica’s democratic identity; it’s also a portrayal of how a courageous woman escaped the confines of a traditional, sheltered existence. The screening will be followed by a discussion led by John Herrera. He is from Costa Rica and is the co-founder of the Latino Community Credit Union. This screening is supported by the generosity of BB&T Bank.
