[26 MAR 99] CHRISTINE ODDY PRESS RELEASE
Central America Film Date for Oddy

Euro MP Christine Oddy is off to the cinema today to see the highly-acclaimed film Carla’s Song, which is being screened in Birmingham as part of a month-long programme of events focusing on Central America.

The film, by the Nuneaton-born director Ken Loach, looks at the successes and tragedies of the Nicaraguan revolution through the eyes of a young Glaswegian man who visits the troubled Central American state.

The film is being shown as part of the commemoration of the anniversary of the assassination of Monsenor Oscar Romero, Archbishop of El Salvador, who was murdered during the country's brutal civil war.

Ms Oddy has had a long-standing interest in Central America and the Caribbean and earlier this year visited El Salvador, Nicaragua and Guatemala to look at European Union-funded programmes to repair the damage caused by Hurricane Mitch.

She said:

"I have taken a close interest in Nicaragua and its revolution, having visited the country several times. I am looking forward to seeing how this brilliant director has interpreted the revolution which was one of the most important events in recent times in Central America."
