AFROLATINOS: The Untaught Story
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.
Please spread the word! Our Indiegogo Campaign ends in FIVE days and we need your help.
