Pelo de GusanoDVD
Jesse is excited about entering the second grade - she has both a new teacher her old friends Terry and Anne! This year, there is a new girl in class, Nia, and she and Jesse make friends right away. But there is something different about Nia, and Terry and Anne don't like it. How can Jesse keep her old friends and her new one? Pelo de gusano is the Spanish translation of the award winning English DVD, Wormhead, a wonderful, gentle story about accepting people as they are. Fear, suspicion and dislike are transformed by the simple act of talking, a reminder that is as important for adults as it is for children. Classically trained Mexican actor and writer Angel Pineda narrates this time. His beautiful voice and 'perfect Spanish' can be heard on many children's audio books, as well as Pope John Paul II's Cruzan do el umbra de la sporrans (Crossing the Threshold of Hope). Wormhead has garnered the 2008 Parent's Choice "Recommended" award, 2008 Memphis Best Animated Film For Children Award, 2007 NAPPA Honors Award and "Best Animation" at the 2007 Texas Black Film Festival. This DVD has also been featured at the 2006 Cannes Shorts Corner and selected in over twenty film festivals. Clients include the United Federation of Teachers in New York.
