Diffusing Stereotypes Through Knowledge: Exploring Spanish-Language Documentaries

Anita Santa-Coloma and I will share with audiences coverage from Texas State University's recent international Spanish-language documentary festival "Puntos de Vista" and provide Web viewers with a more in-depth look at issues discussed in the documentaries. The event took place Thursday, April 8 in the LBJ Student Center and showcased 16 documentaries from eight institutions in four Latin American countries (Colombia, Ecuador, Mexico and Peru).

We plan to incorporate photographs from the event as well as video footage and interviews with a few of the festival's participants. It will be interesting to hear the students' opinions on the issues presented in their documentaries as well as their perceptions of media in the United States.
