I'm happy to announce that Niños de la Memoria (Children of Memory) will have its broadcast premiere on the series Global Voices on June 30th at 10:00pm!
Global Voices, a showcase of internationally themed documentaries made by independent filmmakers from around the globe, is part of The World Channel, a 24/7, full service multicast channel featuring public television’s signature nonfiction documentary, science and news programming complemented by original content from emerging producers.
A little bit about the film:
Niños de la Memoria tells the story of the search for children who disappeared during the Salvadoran civil war. Survivors of massacres carried out by the U.S.-trained Salvadoran Army battalions, many were “sold” into adoption in the U.S. and Europe, never knowing their true history or identity. The film weaves together the journeys of investigator Margarita Zamora, adoptee Jamie Harvey, and farmer Salvador García as they search for family, identity, and justice in El Salvador, and asks the larger question: How can a post-war society right the wrongs of the past?
If your PBS station doesn't subscribe to The World Channel, the film will also stream for 21 days post-broadcast. For more info:http://worldchannel.org/programs/global-voices/
