CNN en Español Produces Featurette to Accompany Documentary in U.S. Theaters

ATLANTA – The impact of music on children is the central theme of a featurette and documentary that news channel CNN en Español and NCM Fathom are bringing to U.S. theaters

The documentary about Venezuelan conductor Gustavo Dudamel will be screened first on June 23 in 440 movie theaters around the country and three weeks later, on July 13, segments of it and the entire featurette will be broadcast by CNN en Español in the United States and Latin America on a special edition of Showbiz, airing at 3:00 p.m. ET.

Executive produced by Tony Fadel, “Dudamel: Let the Children Play” recounts the travels of the 30-year-old violinist and music director of the Los Angeles Philharmonic through several countries where he presented the musical education program known as “El Sistema” (The System), of which he is a product.

The National System of Youth and Children’s Orchestras of Venezuela is a program created in 1975 by musician and economist Jose Antonio Abreu, which provides musical training to children from low-income families and currently is being offered in 50 countries.

The Dudamel film is showing with the CNN production “Crescendo – Why music is life,” which discusses the importance of music in children’s lives.

“As a network (for) Latinos in the United States, Latin America and everywhere, it’s also really powerful to ... in some way present and celebrate the important deeds of our region, not only to cover negative things,” Cynthia Hudson, senior vice president and general manager of CNN en Español and Hispanic strategy for CNN/U.S., told Efe.

Participating in the companion featurette with their testimonials are well-known Latino musical artists such as Emilio Estefan, Ricardo Montaner, Gloria Trevi, Rudy Perez, Oscar D’Leon, Luis Enrique, Gilberto Santa Rosa and Natalia Jimenez, among others. EFE
