The Bridge-El Puente

Documentary Feature Film

"The Bridge-El Puente" is a feel -good family documentary film that brings solutions to racial and cultural prejudice directed toward Hispanic children and families. Is the culprit the media, strange politics, or the disempowering influence of generational prejudice? This film explores what families and children can do to transform prejudice to positive cultural communication.

The film stars Latin Grammy- Award Nominee Maria Elizabeth Del Rey, an award-winning, international recording artist and producer. We follow Maria on her multi-year national tour throughout North America reaching children and communities in hot beds of racial prejudice to bring an empowered, joyful, social justice message that celebrates and uplifts the Hispanic culture."The Bridge-El Puente" is produced by ChildGood Films and edited by Dan Swietlik (An Inconvenient Truth, Michael Moore's "Sicko" and "Deep Web").
