Havana film festival tackles visibility of Latins in Hollywood

HAVANA, Cuba, Dec 11 (ACN) Removing the stereotypes that affect the talent of the Latin actors within Hollywood film productions is currently one of the main working goals of the Screen Actors Guild- American Federation of Television and Radio Artists (SAG-AFTRA).

Since the organization's beginnings in 2012, its specialists have constantly monitored casting spots to advise producers on how to write appropriate descriptions for roles, without race or ethnicity specifications, explained Duncan Crabtree-Ireland, director of operations and general advisor to the U.S. entity.
The idea is to create more opportunities for artists in Spanish-language productions, he said during a press conference held at the Taganana Room of the Hotel Nacional de Cuba, as part of the 41st Havana Film Festival.
For his part, Jorge Aguirre, project coordinator of SAG-AFTRA, explained about the demos of ethnic minority artists before producers, and about their work with higher status members, that is, celebrities, so that in their voices the struggle for greater representation becomes more alive.
With headquarters in Los Angeles, California, this association represents more than 116.000 creators, including actors, broadcasters, radio and television journalists, voice actors, media professionals, action stunts, and other specialties.
