This film series will be focused on generating reflections on migration and the implications it has on society and the natural and financial resources of the countries, regions, and localities. This initiative is part of the promotion and integration strategy of the work plan defined by the Pacific Alliance Technical Group on Culture for 2022.
The exhibition of films can be seen freely through www.retinalatina.org and in its application for iOS and Android. This digital platform can be visited free of charge from all over Latin America and the Caribbean countries.
