The producers of the documentary Afro-Latinos “The Untaught Story” are seeking summer interns to assist with post production / social media.

We are looking for students or aspiring writers / filmakers interested in becoming apart of the Afrolatino team this role is for people who would like a career in film.

Positions are opened to high school, undergraduate and graduate students seeking writing, editing or audio visual experience. If you’re interested in working towards social justice, learning about Latin American communities and discovering what the social issues are that affect the afrodescendent communities throughout Latin America please apply.

This is a wonderful opportunity to be a part of a project that aims to bring change to over 150 million afro latinos who are without voice.


Afrolatinos “The Untaught Story” is a documentary television series independently produced by Creador Pictures, LLC. This is the story of the estimated 150 million invisible afrodescendants currently living in Latin America. Afrolatinos is a seven part series in English and Spanish, that shows the rich culture and shares the contributions of the enslaved Africans who arrived to the Caribbean, Central and South America.

The program aims to better understand religious connections and distinctions between the Catholic Church as well as the Yoruba and Voodoo traditions. We learn about the influence of Africa through dance and music. The drum is a very significant instrument used in Latin music but how many people know its history? We also have a segment on Afro-Latino gastronomy, which will show the many dishes with African influence seen in every day life. Identity and racial discrimination are just a few of the many social issues affecting Afrolatinos. We interview people from the U.S to Argentina about issues such as self-hate this idea of good hair, bad hair), interracial marriages, oppression and exploitation.

This documentary takes you on a journey to meet Afrolatinos throughout Spanish speaking nations, and we include Haiti and Brazil. Our mission is to teach the uninformed and initiate social change throughout Latin America.
