VIC receives post production funds

Parents Discuss Communication

Through the generosity of the Leichtag Family Foundation, VIC has received funds to produce “Vamos a Hablar/Let’s Talk” as a fully bi-lingual video. This project is intended to open pathways for discussion between Latino youth and adults, parents and teens, about sexuality, healthy relationships and reproduction. Studies show that youth want to talk to their parents about sex and relationships, but often parents do not know what to say, how to say it, or when. Studies also show that the rates of teens pregnancy within the Latino population decline when there is open conversation between parents and their children. The video includes dramatic re-enactments of model conversations between youth and adults, interviews with teen parents, and interview with professionals. This $15,000 grant will fund transcription, translation and subtitling (Spanish and English), and fully bi-lingual ancillary materials.
