Last week, you might have heard Whoopi Goldberg and Sunny Hostin of ABC’s “The View” discussing the HOLA Awards, the nation longest running active advocacy organization for Latino artists. Throughout the years, several renowned Hispanic artists have received an HOLA award, including Rita Moreno, Antonio Banderas, Lin-Manuel Miranda and Benicio del Toro.
We’re excited to announce the addition of TimeLine’s own Diego Chiri to that illustrious list. Diego received the HOLA Award for Outstanding Achievement in Direction for his work in the off-Broadway theatre production “La gran Semíramis”, which premiered at Repertorio Español earlier this year.
The news also broke on public television in Peru – Diego’s home country. In the News Show “Agenda7.3” Diego was interviewed (in Spanish) about his experience directing the play and the importance of having a platform on which Latino artists can tell stories in their own language in a city where the Hispanic community continues to grow everyday.
Here at TimeLine Video we continue with our own mission to expand our involvement with the Hispanic community, while ensuring Latino men and women are fairly and accurately represented in the media and in our work.
