Honduras, 2 years after the coup

Ever since I left Honduras to tour Europe with my footage of the protesters in August 2009, I have felt quite a weird connection to that country — even though I had only been there a few days, I felt like I was somehow responsible for spreading the knowledge about what was happening there. At the same time, I was quite afraid of returning to Honduras. When this year de-throned present José Manuel Zelaya Rosales was allowed to return, I thought it should be safe enough now. I created a series of mini videos, each representing an interview with a Honduran activist about how they see things now. Unfortunately the interviews will only be available in Spanish.

Nicaragua, back from the dead?

As Daniel Ortega won the popular vote with more then 50% of the vite for the first time since the early 1980s, I thought I should mention my recently released book Nicaragua, Back from the Dead? An anthropological View of the Sandinista Movement in the early 21st Century.
