A Southern belle’s journey through love, exile and revolution to become First Lady of Costa Rica.

 

 

Synopsis:

While visiting an aunt and uncle in the exotic countryside of Costa Rica, a young southern belle from Alabama accepted a ride on the back of a motorcycle belonging to a local charismatic farmer — a ride that would propel her down narrow mountain roads and into history.

First Lady of the Revolution is the remarkable story of Henrietta Boggs, who fell in love with a foreign land and the man destined to transform its identity. Her marriage to future President of Costa Rica Jose ‘Don Pepe’ Figueres in 1941 led to a decade-long journey through activism, exile and political upheaval and, ultimately, lasting progressive reforms.

First Lady of the Revolution 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 to expand her horizons into a new world, and live a life she never imagined.

Press Quotes:

"Fascinating oral history about Costa Rican social history from a nonagenarian still sharp as a tack and very engaging"

- Louis Proyect, Counterpunch.org

"It's a fascinating documentary. [Henrietta's] transformation from a somewhat sheltered Southern belle to one of the leaders of a historic revolution is told by her so matter-of-factly that it makes her independence and bravery all the more impressive."

- Rick Harmon, Montgomery Advertiser
