First Lady of the Revolution
is a 71-minute documentary film produced by Andrea Kalin.

First Lady of the Revolution tells the remarkable story of Henrietta Boggs, a young Alabaman who fell in love with a foreign land and the man destined to transform its identity. Her marriage to José ‘Don Pepe’ Figueres in 1941 led to a journey of activism, exile, political upheaval and, ultimately, lasting progressive reforms. This unforgettable documentary depicts the momentous struggle to shape Costa Rica’s democratic identity, and portrays a courageous woman escaping the confines of a traditional, sheltered existence to expand her horizons into a new world.

Bending the Arc 
is downright inspiring, hails Variety magazine. Academy Award nominated producer, Cori Shepherd Stern, takes us back thirty years ago,  when as much of the word was ravaged by horrific outbreak of AIDS and tuberculosis, three remarkable activists came together while attending college at Harvard to provide medical relief to a Haitian squatter settlement. Determined to provide the same world-class level of medical care they would expect for their own families to the Haitians that soon became their friends, they faced obstacles considered insurmountable by the rest of the world. Because of their dedication, world policies changed, entrenched ideas transformed, and millions of lives were pulled from the brink of death.
