about habla

Habla is an award-winning property on HBO Latino. Latinos from all walks of life tell their personal stories, including poets, comedians and community leaders, but also janitors, soldiers and lowriders. Habla gives a platform to real people whose stories might otherwise not be heard, reaching beyond the Latino community to build a bridge of understanding that goes in both directions.

“The Habla series has provided a safe space for U.S. Latinos to talk, where it’s okay to speak English, Spanish, or Espanglish, and where accents are welcomed and Latinos of all walks of life can share their joys, their fears and their dreams,” say Trina Bardusco and Alberto Ferreras, the directors of the special. “Every single subject has a totally different story. They talk about family, work, love, sex, beauty… they can be very funny, but also deeply moving.”
