Barbara Trent’s experience as an activist spans 35 years and ranges from grassroots organizing in the Midwest related to the Vietnam War, poverty, and racism to the creation of highly controversial political documentaries that have been broadcast and screened in theaters throughout this country and abroad. In 1993, she and her filmmaking team won the Academy Award for Best Documentary Feature for The Panama Deception, an independently produced indictment of the 1989 U.S. invasion of Panama. Other award-winning feature-length documentaries she has directed and produced include COVERUP: Behind the Iran-Contra Affair and Destination Nicaragua, both of which are highly critical of recent U.S. foreign policy in Latin America.
