Media that Matters

Novela, Novela”is a 7- minute report won a women’s rights project award from the Media That Matters Film Fest. Watching the streaming video, it tells the story of a telenovela airing in Nicaragua about violence against women in the home. The broadcast TV series looks exciting, penetrating. Called “Sexto Sentido”(Sixth Sense) it is produced by Virginia Lacayo and Amy Bank who are the directors of a not-for-profit center, “Puntos de Encuentro.” doing exciting things with homophobia and other issues central but disturbing in Nicaraguan society. I like their motto: “We are Different, We Are The Same.”
