Eduardo Galeano [electronic resource]

Articulating his profound and compelling worldview, Uruguayan writer Eduardo Galeano imbues this program with a poetic sensibility and an unconstrained intellectual curiosity. Ruminations on prehistoric gender roles, global warming, and the twilight of socialism underscore Galeano's notion of disabled memory-his term for the reshaping of history according to one's fears and prejudices-as well as his thoughts on humanity's chances for survival. The author of Memory of Fire and Open Veins of Latin America also contemplates the effects of Uruguay's past military dictatorship, which imprisoned him and subsequently forced him into 11 years of exile.

Manos del Uruguay [electronic resource]

It began in 1968 as a tiny commerce organization based in the Uruguayan capital of Montevideo. Today, Manos del Uruguay is an international business that exports to the U.S., Japan, and Europe. This program looks at the success of the women's garment-making cooperative, and in doing so, weaves together helpful Spanish lessons about day-to-day business practices as well as shopping for clothes and craft objects. Viewers learn how training is an important part of the Manos philosophy; how members are taught design, production, and administrative skills; and how global distribution occurs from a centralized location in Montevideo.
