The documentary film, “La Voz Del Pueblo,” will debut at Loyola University on Monday Nov. 17, 2014 as part of the celebration of the 25thanniversary of the Salvadorian martyrs.
The free showing will take place in Studio A, on the fourth floor of the Communications/ Music Complex, at 7 p.m. The 17-minute documentary explores the increasing murder rates in Honduras and the daily struggles of being a reporter in the country. A brief Q&A session with the director, Father Jeremy Zipple, will be held following the film. The event will also feature snacks and refreshments courtesy of the School of Mass Communication at Loyola University.
“Honduras has the highest murder rate in the world because of the corrupt and unable government. ‘La Voz del Pueblo’ explores their personal lives, exploring what motivates them to do what they do in the face of such terror,” said Fr. Zipple.
Zipple is a Jesuit priest and non-fiction television producer. He has been a director, producer and writer for National Geographic for five years. He has also produced for PBS, Discovery and TLC.
The School of Mass Communication, the Shawn M. Donnelley Center for Nonprofit Communications, the Office of Mission and Ministry, the Center for Latin American and Caribbean Studies, the Jesuit Social Research Institute and the Loyola University Community Action Program, will sponsor the event.
