HBO Max has announced that the sixteenth instalment of its ‘Habla’ franchise, titled ‘Habla Loud’, is set to premiere on the streaming service on October 7.
The world premiere of the new instalment will take place at The 23rd Annual New York Latino Film Festival.
Habla Loud is an hour-long feature that comprises interviews with celebrities and influential Latinos. It features Nicolas Entel, Leila Cobo, Carla Morrison, Wilson Cruz, Isabella Gomez, Natalie Diaz and Ritchie Torres, among more.
Alberto Ferreras, series creator and director, said: “I’m intrigued by personal experiences that lead to social changes. Every story in this new installment is about transformation: how did Residente become a rapper, or Mickey Melendez become an activist and the founder of the Young Lords? How did poet Natalie Diaz rescue the language of her Mojave tribe?
“We spoke with artists, activists, journalists, and political representatives to reveal how their personal journeys have had an everlasting influence in the community. HABLA LOUD will help us understand the profound complexity of the Latino experience in the U.S.”
