WIRE)–February 26, 2007–HITN-TV, “the channel that educates and entertains”
and El Museo de la Palabra y la Imagen (MUPI), invite you to watch “1932,
Scars of Memory”, a documentary which will be broadcast on HITN-TV on Thursday,
March 1st at 9pm ET.

This will be the premier
of this documentary in the US. It deals with the events that took place in El
Salvador in 1932, which led to the death of more than ten thousand indigenous
people and several decades of civil war. Following the program, between 10 and
11 pm ET, HITN-TV’s production Latinoamérica Hoy will host a “live”
discussion with a panel of experts on this topic.

HITN-TV viewers can also
call in to participate in the discussion and express their thoughts on this
part of the history of El Salvador.

In recognition of the recent
75th anniversary of the historical events of 1932, which impacted the cultural,
social and political history of El Salvador, the MUPI and HITN-TV also encourage
people particularly Salvadorian groups to gather in churches, cultural centers
and their homes to watch the broadcast together and to participate in the Latinoamérica
Hoy show.

The film “1932, Scars
of Memory” was produced by the MUPI and directed by Jeff Gould and Carlos
Henríquez Consalvi, with the intention to make heard the voices of survivors
of the massacre of more than 10,000 indigenous people from El Salvador’s
western region.
