New documentary film on the 1961 Literacy Campaign

By Ariana Hernandez-Reguant, Cinema Add comments

The producers are looking for SoCal venues to screen it in April:

The film features Norma Guillard talking about her coming of age in the Literacy Campaign as a young woman of 15 who left home to work in the countryside as a literacy teacher, una maestra. Norma is a Cuban social and clinical psychologist, a university professor, a scholar and activist. She works primarily on the issues of gender, race, sexual orientation, and issues of diversity and identity in a Cuban and Caribbean context, and is one of the first Cuban women of her generation to call herself a feminist. Guillard will be in the US in March and April to publicize this documentary on the 1961 Cuban literacy campaign that organized over 100,000 youth to teach illiterate citizens to read and write. Catherine Murphy produced and filmed the documentary.

    Thank you for posting this, Ariana. As you may know, the woman I lived with in Havana had been a literacy campaign volunteer as a teenager, and her stories about that experience and the ways it transformed her life, were remarkably similar to those of these three women. As well as providing her first experience away from home, it also enabled her to later attend university in Havana on a scholarship, something which would otherwise have been impossible given her family circumstances.

    Look forward to seeing the whole documentary!
