Novela, Novela Liz Miller 2002 30 min. USA

The main characters of Sexto Sentido (or Sixth Sense), Nicaragua's only homegrown telenovela soap opera, aren't rich kids, jocks, or beautyqueens - they're working-class teenagers who help each other deal with tough issues like homophobia, racism, and domestic violence. The award-winning documentary, Novela, Novela examines how a group of Nicaraguan feminists have successfully fused human rights with popular culture and brought this ground-breaking series to broadcast television. The film also portrays the commitment of the creators, writers, actors, and viewers to grappling with controversial themes like LGBT rights in an impoverished country heavily influenced by the Catholic church.

Global Currents includes a curriculum and action guide to help facilitate conversations in the classroom and in youth groups.
