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.
