Cable network Discovery en Español announced Monday that for Hispanic Heritage Month it will broadcast the documentary “Gen H” about the new generation of Latinos and their struggle to transform their dreams into reality.
The program, which will air on Sept. 22, will showcase the lives of three successful young Hispanics who live in the United States and will demonstrate the passion they have for their personal projects, as well as their vision of the country and their community.
“With the premiere of our original production ‘Gen H’ and the rest of our programming lineup, we want to expose the positive force and drive of this young group that follow their own rules and that, with their hard work and vision, have the power to choose their destiny,” the network’s director of content, Eileen Pineiro, said in a statement.
One of the protagonists of “Gen H” is Nina Johnson, an artist of Guatemalan heritage who will show her work as owner of a Miami gallery and founder of The Women of Wynwood, an organization devoted to employing women to improve that neighborhood.
The documentary will also feature Puerto Rican cook Jose Mendin, who is the co-owner of four successful restaurants and was nominated for the prestigious James Beard award for best chef.
Lastly, the documentary focuses on Colombian Juan Felipe Valencia, who has achieved success as a musical composer for television and film.
