Puntos de Encuentro
Diana led an intensive masterclass for a community of underrepresented scriptwriters. The course, in its entirety, lasted several months and covered every aspect of development and writing for television. Simultaneously, Diana provided extensive development of the characters, storylines, and plotting, as well as guidance in the creation of the series' bible, for CONTRACORRIENTE, a scripted, one-hour television drama series.
A Nicaraguan NGO, Puntos de Encuentro is dedicated to fighting the oppression of women and children via edutainment television programming. The organization produces series that tackle significant social issues such as LGBTQ+ rights, the sexual exploitation of children, domestic violence, unemployment and financial instability, and general social malaise.
The writing course was sponsored by a generous grant from the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation.
