A Gala Evening Presentation, presented by The Southwest Center and the Center for Latin American Studies
In the Americas with David Yetman, the new HDTV series by multiple Emmy Award-winning producer and director Dan Duncan and internationally renowned writer, host, and producer David Yetman, takes a fresh look at the lands that make up much of the Western Hemisphere. Each country contains landscapes, peoples, and history that have not received the attention they deserve on the world stage. In the Americas with David Yetman undertakes a new approach to travel and adventure.
From the stories of a small village of Japanese immigrants in the Amazon to descendents of poor Italians in Chile, from Mayan temples in Guatemala to ancient fortresses in Mexico, from the glacier-carved frigid barrens of northern Canada to the timeless villages of the altiplano in Perú, we showcase the Americas in an intimate and distinct way.
At this event, we will be screening "Colombia: Capital and Coffee" and "Fiesta in the Yucatan: Maya Traditions."
