A couple of highlights:

Anatomía de un Vestido, Puerto Rico
This documentary presents the passion, the talents, the history, the struggles and the local and international triumphs of the most renowned fashion designers in Puerto Rico. The history of garment making in Puerto Rico has marked our history, culture and traditions forever. This documentary also presents that part of history that was exploitative as a labor manual industry, but that served as the base for what we have today as a fashions industry.

Donde Nace el Sol, Guatemala

The central protagonist in all these stories is young woman named Maya who witnesses the invasion of her homeland and must run away to survive.
