Film - FIRST LADY OF THE REVOLUTION – About 'Don Pepe' Figueres’ wife, Henrietta Boggs

Henrietta Boggs, a young Southern Belle from Alabama, fell in love in Costa Rica with a man who would transform the country. The film FIRST LADY OF THE REVOLUTION talks about her story and about the decade-long journey of political upheaval and eventual reforms brought about by her husband, Jose (Don Pepe) Figueres.

I wish I could tell you that you can buy the DVD right away, but the film’s website says that they’re all sold out. However, those of you who pay for cable have an opportunity to see the movie on March 25, 2018, at 9 pm, on the WORLD Channel, as part of Reel South Season 3. There’s also a screening planned on April 5, 2018, at Georgetown University in Washington DC. Those of you near to it may want to investigate the possibility of attending.

Meanwhile, enjoy the trailer below. Hopefully the DVD will become available soon. Otherwise, it will eventually end up on PBS, I imagine, since Reel South Season 1 is already there. Patience is a virtue!
