Argentinians Learn to Read and Write with Cuban Method

Buenos Aires, November 5 (PL-RHC)-- More than 26,770 Argentinians have learned to read and write thanks to the implementation of a Cuban literacy program, a human and social battle included in the documentary "Yo si puedo, la alegria de aprender y enseñar" (Yes, I Can, The Happiness of Learning and Teaching).

Premiered last night in the framework of the "Documentalistas Argentinos" (Argentinian Documentary Filmmaker) festival, DOCA 2014, the film by director Maria Torrellas shows the effort by hundreds of volunteers and a group of Cuban teachers, renewing from time to time in the application of that plan.

Torrellas, of the Resumen Latinoamericano TV team, said the film shows the work the Cuban delegation is doing in Argentina, including the "Yo si Puedo" and "Mision Milagro" programs. Collaborators also coordinate the Foundation 'A Better World Is Possible', an effort media has hidden.

"I propose to reveal that tenacious work that group has been carrying out for 10 years to teach how to read and write the most humble sectors in Argentina, as a tribute to that permanent Cuban solidarity," the filmmaker said.

Talking about the literacy program, Torrellas recalled that humanitarian efforts respond to a fundamental idea by the historic leader of the Cuban Revolution, Fidel Castro.

"Documentalistas Argentinos" is an organization of film creativity bringing together creators from this audiovisual expression to recreate and strengthen a new Latin American cinema.
