The telenovela is one of the most popular products of Latin America. It is a format that exploits the world market through the articulation and preservation of cultural difference, and at the same time serves as a powerful tool of self-representation and the re-signification of the continent’s colonial legacy. soy mi madre (2008) by Phil Collins and Crying for the March of Humanity (2012) by Christian Jankowski both employ the format of the telenovela for critical purposes that draw on the aesthetics of the melodrama to talk about issues of immigration, class and race, and the relationship between arts, media and politics.

Sung in the original English with surtitles.

A woman is trapped in a Kafka-esque nightmare of bureaucracy and spies. This searing Broadway operatic drama won the Pulitzer Prize and New York Drama Critics’ Circle Award in 1950. Divas immediately clamored to sing the central character and her sensational and moving aria of freedom.
