ACCENT MEDIA´S 10 MINUTE VIDEO ON CHILEAN POET NOBEL LAUREATE CENTERPIECE OF EMBASSY OF CHILE GALA DINNER

 

Accent Media´s Cecilia Domeyko produced, wrote and directed a ten-minute video entitled “Rediscovering Gabriela” about the discovery of a treasure trove of new poems, letters, photographs and other valuable documents belonging to Gabriela Mistral (1898-1957), a Chilean poet who won the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1951. Gabriela Mistral and Pablo Neruda (1905-1973) are two of Chile’s most beloved and well-known poets. Neruda won the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1971.

 

 

Writer/Director/producer Cecilia Domeyko followed Chilean Ambassador Mariano Fernandez and Minister Counselor Isauro Torres to S. Hadley, Massachusetts to interview Doris Atkinsen, who inherited the Mistral legacy from her aunt Doris Dana, Mistral’s good friend for many years. Ms. Domeyko filmed while Doris Atkinsen packed the legacy before handing it over to the Government of Chile. The video briefly delves into Gabriela Mistral’s life and work, explains how the legacy was discovered, and the importance of the discovery for world literature.

Among the 200 guests were Jose Miguel Insulza, Secretary General of the Organization of American States, Paulina Urrutia, Minister of Culture of Chile, Ambassador Mariano Fernandez and his wife Angelica, and many other members of the Washington diplomatic circle, corporate sponsors, and local celebrities.

Music was by the Chilean groups Inti Illimani and Illapu. Sergio Toro, Second Secretary of the Embassy of Chile and Isauro Torres, Minister Counsellor at the Embassy, were the Executive Directors for the video. The program is currently being distributed by the Ministry of Chile to national Chilean television, as well as schools, libraries and other venues throughout the country.
