The 2020 New York Latino Film Festival (NYLFF) kicks off with Habla Now, the fifteenth installment of HBO Latino’s award-winning “Habla” series. This one-hour documentary special features testimonials from US Latinos –celebrities, recognized professionals, and everyday Latinos – who share honest stories about being Latino in the U.S. The storytellers include Arturo Castro, Nelly Galan, Amara La Negra, Cristina Jimenez, Ozzie Areu, Xiuhtezcatl Martinez, Edgardo Miranda Rodriguez, Mark Hugo Lopez, Mariana Atencio, Laurie Hernandez, Justina Machado, Diane Guerrero, Carmen Carrera, José Andrés, and many more.
Sometimes funny, often poignant, always truthful, “Habla” is an award-winning series on HBO Latino that has put the faces and voices of US Latinos on the screen like no other show before it. The stories told have an educational and cultural impact not only on the fast-growing American Latino community, but also with a broader audience. This hit series is not just the chance for US Latinos to stand up and be heard, but also an opportunity to bridge cultural gaps… and it’s a bridge that goes in both directions.
