José Manuel Acevedo, Liliet Heredero and Jan Martínez Ahrens in conversation with Andrés Mompotes

Narrating America

Cartagena 2022, 

A single region, a multiplicity of realities, ecosystems, cultural contexts and languages. An entire continent with a common history of invasion and dispossession, dictatorship and corruption, with a linguistic diversity in which hundreds of native languages are overshadowed by the dominance of four colonial languages, but also one of the most biodiverse territories on the planet, mother of an unimaginable cultural wealth. How can you say what happens in the Americas? Three expert reporters tell us how they tackle narrating events and news in such a fascinating region. With the director of Noticias RCN, José Manuel Acevedo (Colombia); BBC Mundo reporter Liliet Heredero (Cuba/USA) and El País América Director, Jan Martínez Ahrens (Spain). In conversation with the director of El Tiempo Andrés Mompotes (Colombia)
