Film Preview and Discussion with Writer and Co-Producer, Alicia Anabel Santos. 4:15pm-Tea, 4:30pm- presentation.
There are an estimated 200 million Afro-descendants throughout Latin America; yet the majority have no political or economic power. Afro-Latinos: The Untaught Story will take you on a journey to meet Afro-Latinos throughout Spanish and Portuguese speaking nations of Central and South America and the Caribbean. It is the story of a shared history not found in textbooks. This film gives a voice to communitieswho have been invisible until now.
In 2008, Alicia Anabel Santos joined Creador Pictures as Writer /Co-Producer of its first documentary, "Afro Latinos: La Historia Que Nunca Nos Contaron / AfroLatinos: The Untaught Story", partnering with Renzo Devia, on a project that will change the way the world sees color and race relations in Latin America.
Alicia will present these underrepresented issues and her current research for the documentary.
